The Republic of Orkentine is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 540 million Orkentineans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orkentinia. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Orkentinean economy, worth 17.8 trillion Chorks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 32,948 Chorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orkentine's national animal is the Vampire Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Orkentine is ranked 220,589th in the world and 8,339th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 37,902 Standard Monetary Units.
