The United Realms of Oronia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Felipe III with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 12.976 billion Oronians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antüria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Oronian economy, worth a remarkable 3,348 trillion oroloes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 258,023 oroloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oronia's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Oronia.

Oronia is ranked 2,744th in the world and 41st in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 3,348 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
