The Beseiged Lands of Urdein Straights is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ser Brynden Tully with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.723 billion Urdein Straightsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverrun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Urdein Straightsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,380 trillion Dumas a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,526 Dumas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 410,192 per year while the poor average 19,977, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

Blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, major boxing matches are held in government buildings, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Urdein Straights's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urdein Straights is ranked 13,010th in the world and 5th in Grand Central for Highest Economic Output, with 1,380 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
