The Machine Empire of Orange Creek is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Custodian with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, vat-grown people, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.715 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 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oranscric economy, worth a remarkable 3,874 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 361,560 tremorions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. 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 56,461st in the world and 62nd in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,061.54 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
