The Protectorate of Oriconia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector Zakath with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 10.591 billion Oriconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashan. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, children spout "A world lit only by fire" involuntarily throughout the day, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oriconia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the sovereign.

Oriconia is ranked 2nd in the Pacific and 387th in the world for Best Weather, with 695 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
