The Empire of Orven is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.26 billion Orvenians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Majestia. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Orvenian economy, worth 143 trillion earths a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,009 earths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The OBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Orven's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orven's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Orven is ranked 129,333rd in the world and 7,243rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
