The People's Republic of Ordonstantz is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 264 million Ordonstantzers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Ordonstantzian economy, worth 9.90 trillion Volksmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 37,509 Volksmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, gambling is outlawed, and the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ordonstantz's national animal is the saw-scaled viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ordonstantz is ranked 99,273rd in the world and 523rd in Conch Kingdom for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
