Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Whimsical Republic of The Orion Nebula is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Rigel Mintaka with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.467 billion The Orion Nebulans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trapezium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient The Orion Nebulan economy, worth a remarkable 3,175 trillion warbucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 181,797 warbucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 614,254 per year while the poor average 39,796, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, The Orion Nebula is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Orion Nebula's national animal is the squid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

The Orion Nebula is ranked 2nd in Mars and 4,339th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 656.01 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
