The Earthly Haven of Ora Amaris is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Member Orian Paisley with a fair hand, and renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.104 billion Amarisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eudaimonia. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, the tenet of free speech is held dear, euthanasia is legal, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Ora Amaris Blood Tithe. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ora Amaris's national animal is the butterfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Paganism, and its currency is the circle.

Ora Amaris is ranked 12th in Hippy Haven and 5,938th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 110 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
