The Empire of Orlys is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 399 million Orlysians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Osiris. The average income tax rate is 51.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Orlysian economy, worth 36.0 trillion Telrions a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,218 Telrions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orlys's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Orlys is ranked 241,639th in the world and 550th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Drug Use, scoring 12.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
