The Global Trust Cooperative of The Old English Order is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Director Octavius McGregor with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.106 billion The Old English Orderians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edinburgh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Edinburgh. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Old English Order's national animal is the Harrier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Rationalism, and its currency is the Cruci.

The Old English Order is ranked 2,865th in Osiris and 109,219th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -30 on the Enoch Index.
