The Kingdom of The Orange Microwaves is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 460 million Smarves are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pineable. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Orange Microwavesian economy, worth 33.6 trillion Soda-DeColas a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,135 Soda-DeColas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

When you fly on Air The Orange Microwaves you win a seat or you die, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and cosy TV sitcom "AI Love Lucy" showcases harmonious human-robot cohabitation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Orange Microwaves's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Orange Microwaves is ranked 155,626th in the world and 306th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 316.41 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
