The Holy Empire of Orlandistan is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 847 million Orlandistanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cugnasco. The average income tax rate is 5.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Orlandistanian economy, worth 67.0 trillion Caillouxes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 79,160 Caillouxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Leader day after day, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and the nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Orlandistan's national animal is the Scotoplane, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Orlandistan is ranked 255,386th in the world and 718th in The Wellspring for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.48 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
