The Kingdom of Orepheus is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 45 million Orephics enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 7.6%.

The strong Orephic economy, worth 3.09 trillion Kallatenikos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 68,763 Kallatenikos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes. Crime is almost non-existent. Orepheus's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Orepheus is ranked 128,876th in the world and 3,719th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 3.09 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
