The Kingdom of Orange Creek is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Custodian with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.986 billion Oranscrics 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, well-organized 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 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oranscric economy, worth a remarkable 4,096 trillion tremorions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 372,885 tremorions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and skateparks can be found in every city. 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 eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Crymenathea.

Orange Creek is ranked 240th in the world and 1st in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 107,535.1 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
