Earth Orbit

Population652 million

CapitalOrbis Alpha-1


The Federation of Earth Orbit is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 652 million Orbiters are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbis Alpha-1. The average income tax rate is 12.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Orbitian economy, worth 66.8 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 102,515 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's a common sight to see angry commuters with grenade launchers mounted on their vehicles, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, and criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Earth Orbit's national animal is the tardigrade, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Earth Orbit is ranked 49,247th in the world and 1,854th in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 86.54 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
