The Empire of Orlannn is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its vat-grown people, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.459 billion Orlannnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orlan city. The average income tax rate is 43.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Orlannnian economy, worth 274 trillion Orlans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 187,815 Orlans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Lifeguards are stationed on the streets during rainstorms, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orlannn's national animal is the Syrian Hamster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Orlannn is ranked 18,725th in the world and 25th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.82 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
