The Federation of The Orson Empire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Julia Shepherd with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.1 billion Orsonians 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, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Plaza. The average income tax rate is 85%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the government has outlawed extremist parties, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Orson Empire's national animal is the Solarius Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is --------, and its currency is the Credit.

The Orson Empire is ranked 21st in Empire of Andrew and 111,778th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -61 on the Enoch Index.
