The Holy Empire of Oragyn is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the will of the Ori with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.539 billion Oragynians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Celestial City Upon Most High. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Oragynian economy, worth 120 trillion shals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 78,380 shals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the government seizes all major gold finds, and prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oragyn's national animal is the tabanth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Origin.
