The Grand Duchy of Orinoccov is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 1.404 billion Orinoccovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Orinoccovian economy, worth 55.1 trillion Hollanders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 39,246 Hollanders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, polygamy is legal, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orinoccov's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Orinoccov is ranked 71,481st in the world and 240th in Conch Kingdom for Smartest Citizens, with 37.47 quips per hour.
