The Beseiged Lands of Urdein Straights is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ser Brynden Tully with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.666 billion Urdein Straightsians 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 medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverrun. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Urdein Straightsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,589 trillion Dumas a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,402 Dumas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 410,498 per year while the poor average 19,894, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, Urdein Straightsian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and there's often a little nagging voice suggesting that parents aren't keeping their kids safe. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Urdein Straights's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urdein Straights is ranked 12,935th in the world and 1st in Grand Central for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 5,541.43 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
