The Republic of Orkentine is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 332 million Orkentineans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, 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 61.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Orkentinean economy, worth 11.0 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 major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 33,206 Chorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Orkentinean weed picker are way up, soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, and adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère. 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 171,706th in the world and 7,057th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
