The Sacred Empire of Orange Creek is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Archandrite with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.087 billion Oranscrics are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casablanca. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranscric economy, worth a remarkable 3,172 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, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 314,520 tremorions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Every noble family has a 'personal file' on record courtesy of the central intelligence service, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, and only native-born Oranscrics who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Crymenathea.

Orange Creek is ranked 2,383rd in the world and 2nd in Isle Of Wooloo Kingdom for Most Devout, with 5,913.65 Prayers Per Hour.
