The Kingdom in Flames of Orange Creek is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Custodian with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.742 billion Oranics 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 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Oranic economy, worth a remarkable 4,395 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 a slick, highly efficient, 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 319,879 tremorions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and rumor has it that The Custodian has won three lotteries in a row. 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 owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Crymenathea.

Orange Creek is ranked 1,122nd in the world and 2nd in Institute of Cellulose for Most Developed, scoring 98.45 on the Human Development Index.
