The Kiwi Bird Forest of Ordealius is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Samantha Talon with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, national health service, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.717 billion kiwi birds are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Environment, with Spirituality and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nekolite Village. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The all-consuming Ordealian economy, worth a remarkable 1,397 trillion kilis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 88,918 kilis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's wilderness is only teenage wasteland, the government says that Possession is nine-tenths of the Lore, lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', and interest in globalism never flags. Crime is totally unknown. Ordealius's national animal is the Kiwi Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kiwi-ism.

Ordealius is ranked 162,536th in the world and 96th in The Everlasting Kawaii Empire for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 97,626 Standard Monetary Units.
