El Ocopaera

Population262 million

AnimalÁguila Oro

The Holy Empire of El Ocopaera is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 262 million El Ocopaerans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Law & Order and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The very strong El Ocopaeran economy, worth 19.1 trillion Colóns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 72,960 Colóns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 333,746 per year while the poor average 9,709, a ratio of 34.4 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. El Ocopaera's national animal is the Águila Oro, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

El Ocopaera is ranked 57,158th in the world and 525th in Artificial Solar System for Most Extreme, scoring 25.77 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
