Orovoda is an island nation that lies on the Western continent and is the second Northest country of the NSC World. The territory is made of two islands: Île Fixe and Île Kazé, which are linked by the Quidam Bridge. Orovoda is neighbored by Fervorosia, Vedatistan and Scorpionia at the South and Noizeland at the East.

The country's name is a combination between Oro (Gold in Spanish) and Voda (Water in many slavic languages), thus showing the great diversity of languages and ethnicities of its population. The name also describes the look of the Havi River, largest river of Orovoda, when the Sun shines through the water at sunset and dawn.

Orovoda's flag shares similarities with the one from Québec, the French-speaking province of Canada. Its national emblem is the Fleur-de-Lys (which is also the emblem of Québec), shown in the middle of the flag. On the sides, two water drops symbolizing the great importance of water in Orovoda.

It began in the Nation Song Contest during the 26th edition, after being freed from the waiting list on August 5th. Their first entry was Baila from Ima. The song did not make it to the final, only managing to obtain a 14th place with 60 points in semifinal.

On October 8th 2009, Orovoda announced its full withdrawal from the Nation Song Contest after the 44th edition.

The islands of Orovoda have a young history, due to their late discovery from being located in the North. In 1917, a navigator named Ervigi Höt, sent by the King of Scorpionia to search for new lands to the West of the country, got lost and crashed in the Fixe Island. Unable to go back to his country, he decided to stay on land and build the new country’s capital: Vedrai.

Indigenous people were already living on the island, and participated in the construction of houses’ structures and architectures. Upon inventing new communication technologies, people from around the world got to know about the islands and their attractions. Ninety years later, more than two million people are now citizens of Orovoda.


Orovoda is a small country with approximately 2 129 000 people. Most of them live in the region of Hiréyo, which hosts the capital, Vedrai. (Pop.: 710 000) The country's capital means You will see in Italian.

Other smaller regions include Kamandé (known for its numerous dance and folkloric festivals) and Latora-Volare (which hosts the biggest cheese factory of Orovoda).

Orovodan people are known for their open-mind and outspokenness, according to many tourists.

Politics and GovernmentEdit

Malena Ernman

Ms. Malena Ernman, President of Orovoda

Orovoda is a democratic nation ruled by the new Orovodan Voice Party, with Ms. Malena Ernman at its head. The Party won their first elections on June 6th, beating the Tiger Party once again with 92 seats against 8. Ms. Carola Häggkvist, who was the previous president of Orovoda, and the head of the now defunct Blue Party, withdrawed from this election, causing the party to dismantle. Ms. Häggkvist was suspected of causing violent storms and earthquakes within the country.

Orovoda is an economically challenging country, with many exportations and local products. The country is specialized in arts (more precisely music and cinema) and is well-known for hosting and producing the greatest number of artistic shows and festivals in the world.

The country's only accepted religion is Erviginism, which is also the only religion in Scorpionia. Anyone seen not practicing the religion (consisting in having sex all the time, eating chocolate and being sexy) will be instantly punished to death by having a deadly device known as The Chiara being shoved up their ass.


Orovoda is surrounded by water, thus its temperature is a little colder than normal. Temperature varies between 18 and 25 Celcius in Summer and between -22 and -5 in Winter.


The country doesn't have any military or armed forces. The only conflict known to Orovoda is the War with Scorpionia, which has been resolved without using any weapons.

War with ScorpioniaEdit

On September 23rd 2008, Scorpionia officially declared war to Orovoda. Here are the causes of this announcement:

  • Scorpionia accused Orovoda of stealing its pop-corn prior to the NSC 27 semifinal result show.
  • Orovoda is defending by saying that Scorpionia is egoist and did not want to give some pop-corn.
  • Scorpionia declared that Orovoda did not ask before and stole the pop-corn.
  • Orovoda says they don't need to ask before taking something as insignificant as pop-corn.

On October 30th 2008, Orovoda and Scorpionia came up with an agreement after a pleasurable pillow fight, thus ending the war. Everybody is now happy again and can safely eat candies for Halloween that will not be contaminated with uranium radiations caused by the previous war.
