The United Commonwealth of Orsandia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Reginald Williamson with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.28 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. The average income tax rate is 8.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Orsandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,870 trillion Orsandian Jins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,018 Orsandian Jins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, and footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance. Crime is relatively low. Orsandia's national animal is the Portino Jaybird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Orsandia is ranked 4,414th in the world and 175th in Osiris for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 42,307.52 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
