The Republic of Orob is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.881 billion Orobians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Orobian economy, worth 346 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,867 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say the best compromise leaves everyone feeling a little unarmed, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Orobian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orob's national animal is the Porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Orob is ranked 204,377th in the world and 1,065th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 68,730 Standard Monetary Units.
