The Kiwi Bird Forest of Ordealius is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Samantha Talon with an even hand, and renowned for its lack of airports, ban on automobiles, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.957 billion kiwi birds are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Environment, although Spirituality and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danny Station. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ordealian economy, worth 980 trillion fruits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 70,250 fruits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All recreational drugs are legal, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, and escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ordealius's national animal is the Kiwi Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kiwi-ism.

Ordealius is ranked 19,234th in the world and 55th in Forest for Largest Populations, with 14.0 billion Capita.
