The United Sovereign Republics of Oreliana is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Jack Lowden with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.078 billion Orelianans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Law & Order, although Spirituality, Defense, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sudentor. The average income tax rate is 42.4%.

The powerhouse Orelianan economy, worth 532 trillion belkans a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 44,076 belkans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, calling dibs is an unalienable right, a life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oreliana's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Catholic Church.

Oreliana is ranked 166,598th in the world and 6,778th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -23.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
