Orchardstown is the capital of the Confederation of Leylandiistan & Gurvata. It is 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 is almost entirely agrarian.

History

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.

Economy

The economy of Orchardstown is agrarian, as it is surrounded by orchards and agricultural land. Various types of vegetables are cultivated, though apples remain by far the most productive crop. Cereals such as barley and oats are currently cultivated on a small scale. Two industries have 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.
