Orchardstown was the capital of the Confederation of Leylandiistan & Gurvata. It was also the regional capital of the region of Leylandiistan. It was formerly the administrative centre of the Cubbyhole Territory in the Democratic Republic of Leylandiistan, and from March 2014 the main settlement of the Cubbyhole Autonomous Republic until 30 August 2014. It was officially designated as capital city of the Confederation on 28 May 2016. The economy of the area around Orchardstown was almost entirely agrarian.
The area of Leylandiistan surrounding its northern orchards has always been the economic and political hub of Leylandiistan. It has served as the birthplace of the political movements and projects which have shaped Leylandiistan, and subsequently Leylandiistan & Gurvata. Orchardstown existed unofficially as an administrative centre until official designation as capital city of the Confederation on 28 May 2016, following the enactment of the Classification of Locations Act 2016.
The economy of Orchardstown was agrarian, as it was surrounded by orchards and agricultural land. Various types of vegetables were cultivated, though apples were by far the most productive crop. Cereals such as barley and oats were cultivated on a small scale. Two industries developed from the agricultural sector, with seeds being harvested and exported to other micronations, and apples being juiced and fermented in order to brew "Caochóg" cider.
