Orbis is the world on which the ongoing political and military struggles documented on Politics and War occur.
Orbis may refer not only to the virtual in-game world, but also to the roleplay world created by the community.
The name of the world was chosen by the P&W community itself. Through the Orbis World Forum, the very first inhabitants of this virtual world proposed several names and voted on them. The winning name "Orbis" was proposed by Sheepy who was inspired by the latin word "orbis", meaning (along other things) "world" or "Earth".
