The Federation of The Orson Empire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Julia Shepherd with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 5.668 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 91%, 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.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. 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 1st in Empire of Andrew and 4,807th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
