The Theocratic Crusader State of The Oracai Templar Order is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Master Ectis of House Veaneth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.969 billion Faithful 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saviour's Eyrie. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Templar economy, worth a remarkable 2,341 trillion Ignis 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, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 392,265 Ignis, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and the term "Native Faithful" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Oracai Templar Order's national animal is the Drequai, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Our Burning Saviour.

The Oracai Templar Order is ranked 243,900th in the world and 465th in Forest for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -83 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
