The Dead Memes of Orcuo is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Funnyman with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 860 million Idiots are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funnytopia. The average income tax rate is 46.7%.

The all-consuming Stupid economy, worth 100 trillion currencies a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,228 currencies, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Stupid Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, those who cut young children are told to cut it out, citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, and the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orcuo's national animal is the Animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Orcuo is ranked 255,889th in the world and 12,204th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.81 crimes per hour.
