The United Kingdom of Orsandia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Reginald Williamson with an even hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, daily referendums, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.809 billion Orsandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guangfeng. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Orsandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,135 trillion Orsandian Jins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 197,559 Orsandian Jins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 635,420 per year while the poor average 46,523, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Orsandia's national animal is the Portino Jaybird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Orsandia is ranked 61,353rd in the world and 60th in The Western Isles for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 1,922.71 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
