The Nomadic Peoples of Space Ork Horde is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Glorious and Infalliable Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, vat-grown people, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.554 billion Space Orks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wherever. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.3%.

The frighteningly efficient A Space Ork economy, worth a remarkable 2,647 trillion Rocks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 476,626 Rocks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,811,720 per year while the poor average 86,946, a ratio of 20.8 to 1.

The studies of art and philosophy are banned, the fate of the world literally rests on The Glorious and Infalliable Leader's fingers, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, and a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Space Ork Horde's national animal is the Rock, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Space Ork Horde is ranked 170,255th in the world and 8th in Coalition of Authoritarian Nations for Most Cultured, scoring -62 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
