The United Kingdom of Orange-Bourgogne is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Majesty King Henry I with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 13.656 billion Orange-Bourgognians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster City. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Orange-Bourgognian economy, worth 885 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 64,877 Florines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and children play ring-around-the-rosey around bonfires of videogame cartridges. 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 9,327th in the world and 8th in Geopolity for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,696.67 Tourists Per Hour.
