The United Kingdom of Orange-Bourgogne is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Majesty King Henry I with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 11.305 billion Orange-Bourgognians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster City. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Orange-Bourgognian economy, worth 697 trillion Florines a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,717 Florines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Orange-Bourgognian Embarrassments, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orange-Bourgogne's national animal is the Kingfisher, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Orange-Bourgogne is ranked 75,937th in the world and 30th in Geopolity for Most Politically Free, scoring 59.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
