Union of the Oriental States

LeaderPresident Han Gyeol

The Federation of Union of the Oriental States is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Han Gyeol with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.112 billion Orientals are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hanul. The average income tax rate is 69.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 247 trillion Hwans a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,287 Hwans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union of the Oriental States's national animal is the White Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Neo-Confucianism.

Union of the Oriental States is ranked 145,341st in the world and 6,592nd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.89 on the Rand Index.
