The Abbaddon-Vrystaat of Oranjea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Staatspresident Theo Marais with a fair hand, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.849 billion Oranjeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Middelstad. The average income tax rate is 70.3%.

The powerhouse Oranjean economy, worth 315 trillion rand a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,990 rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

You can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oranjea's national animal is the gemsbok, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reformed Church of Oranjea.

Oranjea is ranked 171,930th in the world and 98th in St Abbaddon for Most Extreme, scoring 11.94 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
