The Beautiful Empire of Orioni 2 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Her Imperial Highness Joni Nabérrie with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 33.615 billion Orionii are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of O'polis. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 4,788 trillion IONS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,443 IONS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, airport security is provided by private companies, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orioni 2's national animal is the pink dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Orioni 2 is ranked 4,862nd in the world and 8th in Eurth for Most Cultured, scoring 150 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
