The Federation of The Orson Empire is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Julia Shepherd with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.436 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 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 88%, 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.

The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, nudity is frowned upon, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. 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 5th in Empire of Andrew and 11,126th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 13 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
