OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grande Absurdity of Ordeiss is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Anna the Great with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.694 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dorne. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology industries.

Citizens are known to cast their votes by flipping a Ord, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime is crippling. Ordeiss's national animal is the Heron, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Cult of the Dear Leader, and its currency is the Ord.

Ordeiss is ranked 4th in Allied States of EuroIslanders and 2,053rd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 50 Whatever.
