I have just counted the population of Orioni and all the puppets under my control and I came to a number which I find extremely large: 7,074 billion.


The total national budget of all these nations is $44,546 trillion ($44.546.832.499.000,00).

Today is our nation's national holiday, when we celebrate the birthday of our beloved empress Orioni. She will be turning quite 22 years of ago, quite young to say at least, but that tragedy is something we do not wish to discuss today. To honour our beloved leader the good people of every Orionian village and city have arranged their own spectacular fireworks. The image bellow shows one such majestic fireworks, an image taken in our capital Orionopolis, where the sensational show started about midnight.

The President of Tamurin wishes to congratulate Empress Orioni on behalf of the people of Tamurin.


I assume that you'll almost drown under all the presents you'll get, so I have decided to give you something small, but I think you'll enjoy it (although my minister of defense proposed an air show with a whole fighter squad).

Happy Birthday!

@ Tamurin: Thank you very much my friend.


In other news: This morning Orioni has been attacked by eight soldiers from an unknown nation with a weird flag. However, the assailants were spotted long before they reached our nation's shores, thanks to some local fishermen who sent a message to Orioni Security. Our national security followed the attackers and waited for them to come ashore. The soldiers must have had poor training, because something went miserably wrong.


A local cameraman made a video of this, which you can view by clicking here.
