The Most Serene Republic of Orohai Peninsula is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Rincewind with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.62 billion Orohains enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mante Bay. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Orohain economy, worth 530 trillion Dollarpounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 146,540 Dollarpounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Mante Bay" t-shirts, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, the Orohain delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime is totally unknown. Orohai Peninsula's national animal is the Luggage, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Orohai Peninsula is ranked 196,148th in the world and 4th in Ankh Morpork for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
