The Unrepublic of Orwellian Observers is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Brother with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.502 billion Orwellian Observersians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Orwellian Observersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,070 trillion thought crimes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 237,802 thought crimes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,184,294 per year while the poor average 26,948, a ratio of 43.9 to 1.

The government is eagerly awaiting a multi-million thought crime payment from a deposed Smalltopian monarch, the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, and foreign leaders who don't applaud Big Brother's speeches are regarded as enemies of Orwellian Observers. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Orwellian Observers's national animal is the Chestnut Tree, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is INGSOC.

Orwellian Observers is ranked 21,722nd in the world and 345th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 762.0802761572 Days.
