The Democratic Republic of Ordistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Carl with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.658 billion Ordistanis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ordiskill. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ordistani economy, worth 947 trillion Ordis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,916 Ordis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Ordistan will pay them to stop. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ordistan's national animal is the Loon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ordistan is ranked 9,582nd in the world and 326th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 82.64 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
