The United Commonwealth of Orsandia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Reginald Williamson with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, triple-decker prams, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.548 billion Orsandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guangfeng. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Orsandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,541 trillion Orsandian Jins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 202,527 Orsandian Jins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,146,286 per year while the poor average 17,532, a ratio of 65.4 to 1.

There's no representation without taxation, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Orsandia's national animal is the Portino Jaybird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Orsandia is ranked 188,965th in the world and 132nd in The Western Isles for Least Corrupt Governments, with 84.58 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
