The Orson Empire

Population22.782 billion

LeaderMāia Akenehi


The People's Republic of The Orson Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Māia Akenehi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 22.782 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravenwood. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Orsonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,050 trillion Kirahes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 221,690 Kirahes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, in a fit of passion Māia Akenehi has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and war is made in the name of love. 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 Emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is --------.

The Orson Empire is ranked 1,721st in the world and 2nd in Empire of Andrew for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,290.93 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
