The Republic of The Orion Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Keevert with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.386 billion Orionites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Orionite economy, worth a remarkable 1,403 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,724 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 719,392 per year while the poor average 50,406, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. 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 157,173rd in the world and 910th in Europeia for Most Pacifist, with 8.84 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
