The United Democratic Federation of Civa-Orchestra is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord-Protector Byron Bracchus with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.46 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Healthcare, Education, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. 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 2,397 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 253,439 Orchais, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,041,103 per year while the poor average 40,708, a ratio of 25.6 to 1.
Former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, Lord-Protector Byron Bracchus's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity. 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 and its national religion is Agnosticism.
