The Kingdom and the Church of Orange Creek is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Custodian with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.019 billion Oranics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casablanca. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranic economy, worth a remarkable 3,968 trillion tremorions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 304,785 tremorions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Orange Creek, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orange Creek's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Crymenathea.

Orange Creek is ranked 81,705th in the world and 45th in Institute of Cellulose for Most Extreme, scoring 24.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
