The Holy Orange Vaticanate of Orange Pomander is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Pontius Pilate with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.524 billion Pomanderians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, socially-minded government is effectively ruled by the Department of Religion & Spirituality, with areas such as Defence and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vatican. Income tax is unheard of. 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.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Orange Pomander's border. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Orange Pomander's national animal is the orange, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the pomander.

Orange Pomander is ranked 50th in Hippy Haven and 98,929th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -25 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
