The Orange Line of 98X is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Davis Wellington with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.652 billion 98Xers 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 small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14%. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Woodchip Exports industry.

Cars are banned from built-up areas, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 98X's national animal is the winged hamster, and its currency is the coin.

98X is ranked 18th in Esportiva and 13,966th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2 on the Hayek Index.
