The Tragedy of Orpheus and Eurydice is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Moirae with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.958 billion Lovers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asphodel Meadows. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Loving economy, worth 730 trillion eros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,620 eros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves, it's believed that women's brains will overheat if they think for themselves, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and snitches get riches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Orpheus and Eurydice's national animal is the Cerberus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Transmigration of Love.

Orpheus and Eurydice is ranked 262,717th in the world and 97th in Underworld for Fattest Citizens, with 6.18 Obesity Rate.
