The Federation of Earth Orbit is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 497 million Orbiters have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbis Alpha-1. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Earth Orbitian economy, worth 50.1 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 100,709 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Earth Orbit's national animal is the tardigrade, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
