The Orson Empire

Population15.529 billion

CapitalCentral Plaza
LeaderJerick Pallas


The Federation of The Orson Empire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jerick Pallas with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.529 billion Orsonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Plaza. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Orsonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,380 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 217,717 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government violently suppresses separatist movements, nude art is becoming wildly popular, people say chess victor Jerick Pallas can kill you with mind-bullets, and pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Orson Empire's national animal is the Kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is --------.

The Orson Empire is ranked 1,466th in the world and 1st in Empire of Andrew for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 19,769.02 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
