The Kingdom and the Church of Orange Creek is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Custodian with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.557 billion Oranics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casablanca. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranic economy, worth a remarkable 4,162 trillion tremorions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 360,151 tremorions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees her shadow, bins outnumber trees in city parks, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Casablanca. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orange Creek's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Crymenathea.

Orange Creek is ranked 232,739th in the world and 229th in Institute of Cellulose for Best Weather, with 55 meters of sunlight.
