The Dictatorship of Orderstan is a large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 87 million Orderstanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Orderstanian economy, worth 1.83 trillion Euros a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 21,066 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Orderstan's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Orderstan is ranked 226,451st in the world and 56th in The New Empire for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.72 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
