The Free Land of Orothine is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 168 million Orothineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Orothinean economy, worth 5.36 trillion marks 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 31,881 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, surveillance cameras are banned, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orothine's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Orothine is ranked 112,389th in the world and 245th in Conch Kingdom for Most Extreme, scoring 16.9 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
