The Empire of Primo Order is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Adam Grillo with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.162 billion Supreme Emperors are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Order. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Supremo economy, worth 362 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,475 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is, graffiti graces every city's streets, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Primo Order's national animal is the Marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Primo Order is ranked 232,884th in the world and 321st in Thaecia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.14 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
