The Sleepy Orion Beary Way of Spooky Orion Bowshock is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sleepy Orion Chief the SPOOKY with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 25.392 billion Sleepy Orion Carebears 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Sleepy Orion Ecumenopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sleepy Carebeary economy, worth a remarkable 5,666 trillion Sleepy Orion Bamboos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 223,148 Sleepy Orion Bamboos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and both criminals and civilians are DOA. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spooky Orion Bowshock's national animal is the Sleepy Orion Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sleepy Orion Beary Catholic.

Spooky Orion Bowshock is ranked 239th in the world and 10th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 12,191.88 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
