The Theocracy of Orthopraxos is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Papess Theodora with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 22.773 billion Orthopraxosans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Orthopraxosan economy, worth a remarkable 2,052 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 90,122 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Orthopraxosan democracy, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, Papess Theodora has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orthopraxos's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monotheistic.

Orthopraxos is ranked 205,176th in the world and 4th in Spoiled Cats for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -25.1 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
