The United Realms of Oronia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Felipe III with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 19.341 billion Oronians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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

The frighteningly efficient Oronian economy, worth a remarkable 5,663 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 292,819 oroloes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

More than one company makes the board game Monopoly, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, and the nation's beloved 'good-natured doormat' is inundated by begging letters. 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 96,402nd in the world and 1,017th in the West Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 40.39 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
