The Holy Orange Vaticanate of Orange Pomander is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Pontius Pilate with a fair hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.22 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 relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, with Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Vatican. The average income tax rate is 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Orange Pomanderian economy, worth 221 trillion pomanders a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 24,001 pomanders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Orange Pomander's national animal is the orange, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Orange Pomander is ranked 59th in Hippy Haven and 108,013th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -4 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
