The Kingdom of Orhland is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.87 billion Orhlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Abiet. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Orhlandian economy, worth 202 trillion Liavs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 108,313 Liavs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories place endangered birds in their rafters in pursuit of government protections, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orhland's national animal is the Green Magpie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Orhland is ranked 5,944th in the world and 1st in A Personal Green Mountain for Highest Food Quality, scoring 188.81 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
