The United Kingdom of Orange-Bourgogne is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Majesty King Henry I with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 13.197 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, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster City. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Orange-Bourgognian economy, worth 844 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 64,001 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 5,976th in the world and 2nd in Geopolity for Safest, scoring 125.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
