The Confederation of Ormata is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Premier Noah Scheid with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 10.704 billion Ormatans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Izmaylov Iridama. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ormatan economy, worth a remarkable 1,626 trillion Lire 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 151,949 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Most ambassadors from Ormata retire only a few years after being appointed, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ormata's national animal is the Tuk'ata, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Ormata is ranked 101,968th in the world and 3,540th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,274.92 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
