The Interstellar Domain of Orion is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.137 billion Orionians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Social Policy, and International Aid. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.6%.
The strong Orionian economy, worth 342 trillion Nebulas a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Average income is 47,969 Nebulas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 465,099 per year while the poor average 238, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.
Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Orion's national animal is the Lepus the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
