The Machine Empire of Orange Creek is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Custodian with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, soft-spoken computers, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.623 billion Oranscrics 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 medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casablanca. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oranscric economy, worth a remarkable 3,701 trillion tremorions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 348,425 tremorions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The children of Orange Creek are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orange Creek's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Crymenathea.

Orange Creek is ranked 2,882nd in the world and 4th in Institute of Cellulose for Lowest Crime Rates, with 123.77 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
