The United Democratic Federation of Civa-Orchestra is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lord-Protector Byron Bracchus with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.641 billion Civans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Civalen-Orchus. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Civan economy, worth a remarkable 2,142 trillion Orchais a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 247,968 Orchais, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,105,941 per year while the poor average 34,542, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.
Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Orchai battlesuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Civa-Orchestra's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Agnosticism.
