Orson Vern Klarass (8 October 1882 - 16 May 1981) was a Staynish statesman, political thinker, revolutionary and the first Prime Minister of Morstaybishlia from 1917 to 1924. He founded the Principles of Democracy Party after the 19th century movement of the same name; alongside Frederick Alderman, Benjamin Baltassar and Ronald Rakara. He had a long career as MP for Kalmington, Bursil, beating his opposition in ten general elections to serve over 43 years, narrowly missing out on becoming Father of the House as he was the second longest serving MP from the inception of Parliament in 1917.

Orson Klarass was a right-wing political ideologist and thinker from the age of 22, and became a notable figure of the Principles of Democracy movement for a change away from autocratic power in the Morstaybishlian Empire. His passion grew during the Great War, co-founding the Principles of Democracy Party and leading it from 1914, though it was not officially recognised until 1917 when he was the key figure in the Morstaybishlian Revolution, forcing Thadeus II to sign the Great Charter of the Liberties, the Act which would see Parliament gain power over the crown.

Klarass would hold the record of the youngest prime minister to be elected for 112 years, until Walter Johannes beat him in 2005. Klarass retains the record for the longest time alive after leaving office at 56 years.
