The Empire of Orlost is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by FŽanor Bauglir Melkor with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.106 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.

Government officials across Orlost are being "encouraged" to adopt Mongooses to set an example for the populace, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, abortions are routinely performed in Orlost's hospitals, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Orlost after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Orlost is ranked 15th in Thoughtstorm World and 103,210th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
