The Kingdom of The Orange Microwaves is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 426 million Smarves are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pineable. The average income tax rate is 39.2%.

The powerhouse Orange Microwavesian economy, worth 32.1 trillion Soda-DeColas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,259 Soda-DeColas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, intelligence agencies frequently invite passers-by into their secret vaults for tea and biscuits, fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Orange Microwaves's national animal is the Guinea Pig.

The Orange Microwaves is ranked 30,934th in the world and 96th in Conch Kingdom for Best Weather, with 132 Meters Of Sunlight.
