The Theocracy of Orthopraxos is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Papess Theodora with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 23.043 billion Orthopraxosans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Orthopraxosan economy, worth a remarkable 2,068 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 89,754 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new one lira coin also makes a handy throwing-star, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orthopraxos's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monotheistic.

Orthopraxos is ranked 24,722nd in the world and 2nd in Spoiled Cats for Nudest, with 215.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
