The Empire of Orven is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.119 billion Orvenians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Majestia. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Orvenian economy, worth 285 trillion earths a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,878 earths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, tourists call Orvenian beach towns "the fine coastline", Majestia's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orven's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Orven is ranked 2,835th in the world and 163rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.42 on the Human Development Index.
