The Commonwealth of Vorion is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by 05-Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.15 billion Vorionians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Triton. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vorionian economy, worth 757 trillion Bitcoins 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,110 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and 05-Council's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vorion's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Spaghetti monster.

Vorion is ranked 111,234th in the world and 5,170th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 17.01 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
