The Dictatorship of Oreka is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 241 million Orekans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.5%.

The powerhouse Orekan economy, worth 17.1 trillion Zentimoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 70,767 Zentimoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 342,138 per year while the poor average 8,493, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.

Leader signs the laws but abides by none of them, nudity is frowned upon, streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, and some say Leader has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Oreka's national animal is the Pottok, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Oreka is ranked 10,059th in the world and 2nd in Estado Novo for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 40.28 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
