The Kingdom of Orchardium is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.48 billion Orchardians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oraple. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Orchardium economy, worth 167 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,213 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The skeletons of lost tourists litter the ground of the Great Orchardium Desert, Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, Orchardium has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and Orchardium police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orchardium's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Orchardium is ranked 26,051st in the world and 19th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.6 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
