The Grand Republic of Ortmayerland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Lord President Ortmayer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.459 billion Ortmayerlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ortmayerland City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ortmayerlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,522 trillion Ortmayers a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 282,739 Ortmayers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,016,951 per year while the poor average 56,266, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ortmayerland's national animal is the Ortmayer Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ortmayerism.

Ortmayerland is ranked 161,743rd in the world and 5,504th in Lazarus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -2.9 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
