The Orson Empire

Population18.625 billion

CapitalCentral Plaza
LeaderJerick Pallas


The State of The Orson Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jerick Pallas with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 18.625 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Plaza. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Orsonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,111 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 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 220,753 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens must have a license to operate a computer, sex changes are routinely performed at The Orson Empire's hospitals, councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, and 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget. 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 9,858th in the world and 7th in Empire of Andrew for Most Influential, scoring 4,965 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
