The People's Republic of Orestea is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 542 million Oresteans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Orestean economy, worth 17.4 trillion lires a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,019 lires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orestea's national animal is the lesser frigatebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Orestea is ranked 105,587th in the world and 3,669th in the West Pacific for Nudest, with 93.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
