The Republic of Orkentine is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 276 million Orkentineans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orkentinia. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Orkentinean economy, worth 8.75 trillion Chorks 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 31,699 Chorks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orkentine has designated Orkentinia as its capital city, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orkentine's national animal is the Vampire Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Orkentine is ranked 167,013th in the world and 3,906th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 83.1 billion Standard Monetary Units.
