The Federation of The Orson Empire is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Julia Shepherd with a fair hand, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.855 billion Orsonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 92%, 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.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. 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 2nd in Empire of Andrew and 1,053rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 395 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
