The Republic of The Orion Islands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Keevert with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.719 billion Orionites 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union City. The average income tax rate is 30.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Orionite economy, worth a remarkable 2,184 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 224,814 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Orion Islands's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Orion Islands is ranked 228,298th in the world and 103rd in Catholic for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.67 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
