The Republic of The Orion Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Keevert with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.79 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 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 63.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Orionite economy, worth a remarkable 1,241 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 214,374 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 693,950 per year while the poor average 50,008, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Military spending recently hit a new high, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Orionite mussels the biggest in Europeia, and many friends and relatives of President Keevert have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. 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 45,281st in the world and 233rd in Europeia for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 73.85 Workforce Participation Rate.
