The Empire of Orlost is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by FŽanor Bauglir Melkor with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.307 billion Orlostians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nulter Ren. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.
Many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orlost's national animal is the Mongoose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is The Worship of Eru Illuvatar, and its currency is the Utain.
