The United Commonwealth of Orsandia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Reginald Williamson with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.579 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 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Orsandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,546 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 frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 202,454 Orsandian Jins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,145,874 per year while the poor average 17,525, a ratio of 65.4 to 1.

There's no representation without taxation, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious 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 19,706th in the world and 53rd in The Western Isles for Most Developed, scoring 81.99 on the Human Development Index.
