The Empire of Oribet is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 281 million Ori are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antriz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The powerhouse Ori economy, worth 32.1 trillion exelts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 114,159 exelts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 404,803 per year while the poor average 23,223, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Oribet's national animal is the bat.

Oribet is ranked 136,837th in the world and 8th in Aetheli for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -4.47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
