The Scattered Fishing Towns of Orandia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queenie Astier with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.112 billion Orandians 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 enormous government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aidnaro. The average income tax rate is 72.0%.

The powerhouse Orandian economy, worth 169 trillion orandis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 80,266 orandis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orandia's national animal is the lemming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Orandia is ranked 222,373rd in the world and 5,444th in the West Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
