The Sleepy Orion Beary Way of Spooky Orion Bowshock is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sleepy Orion Chief the SPOOKY with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 25.644 billion Sleepy Orion Carebears are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Sleepy Orion Ecumenopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sleepy Carebeary economy, worth a remarkable 5,699 trillion Sleepy Orion Bamboos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 222,272 Sleepy Orion Bamboos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, the day of rest is much more restful, using "inspect element" is grounds for espionage charges, and the official Sleepy Carebeary Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spooky Orion Bowshock's national animal is the Sleepy Orion Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sleepy Orion Beary Catholic.

Spooky Orion Bowshock is ranked 60,884th in the world and 2,171st in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 25.16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
