The Theocratic Crusader State of The Oracai Templar Order is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Master Ectis of House Veaneth with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.707 billion Faithful are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saviour's Eyrie. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Templar economy, worth a remarkable 1,689 trillion Ignis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 358,945 Ignis, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, any girl that shows an interest in Lego is pressured to study engineering, military spending recently hit a new high, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Oracai Templar Order's national animal is the Drequai, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Our Burning Saviour.

The Oracai Templar Order is ranked 239,189th in the world and 476th in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 2.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
