The United Realms of Oronia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Felipe III with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 17.311 billion Oronians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 4,863 trillion oroloes a year, is quite specialized and 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 280,920 oroloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and hordes of faceless civil servants are running cities. 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 234,060th in the world and 5,525th in the West Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.07 Weapons Per Person.
