The Republic of Orrtopia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 387 million Orrtopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 35.4%.

The strong Orrtopian economy, worth 28.8 trillion Orrs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,419 Orrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

It's never "just a game" with Orrtopian sports fans, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous", and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orrtopia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Orrtopia is ranked 143,261st in the world and 1,514th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 13.06 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
