The Federation of The Orson Empire is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Julia Shepherd with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 6.002 billion Orsonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as the Environment and Religion & Spirituality 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 93%, 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.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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 19th in Empire of Andrew and 115,553rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -302 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
