The Multiverse Threat of Orcuo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Funnyman with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.681 billion Funnyman Controlled Loyally Mindless Slaves 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝓕unnyman 𝓕un 𝓒itadel of 𝓟ain and 𝓓eath. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Controlled By All Mighty Glorious Funnyman economy, worth 272 trillion Funnyman Approval Points 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. 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 impressive 161,878 Funnyman Approval Points, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "Funnyman's stash", strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, and people spend a lot on hair and nails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orcuo's national animal is the Funnyman Owned Test Subjects, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is FunnymanIsTheBestInTheOmniverseŽ.

Orcuo is ranked 219,604th in the world and 9,077th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 22.09 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
