Time zones in Ordis are relative from Ordic Common Time, centered around Fjellsrud, Meriad, the location of the 1913 Meridian Conference, in which the global system was created and accepted. Time zones are generally offset from Ordic Common Time by whole hours, except in cases such as Quraim Isand Time (OCT -9:30). While the OCT system is generally accepted as the global timekeeping standard, several countries, such as Khornera and Nerotysia, do not use the system on an internal or international level.

Variations[edit]

While the Ordic Common Time system is generally recognized as the global standard for timekeeping, several countries use entirely different systems for determining time.

Khornera[edit]

Khorneran time, while based on the same general time intervals as the Ordic Common Time system, divides the year into different subdivisions, as well as having all times relative to the capital city of Arcadis. This means that, while the geographic time zone boundaries of the two systems are identical, the relative time offsets are not. For instance, in the north of mainland Khornera, the time would simultaneously be Arcadis +1 and OCT -12. In addition, the Khorneran 'Arcadis Standardised Time' model uses a different international dateline, which has at times caused problems in international correspondence between Khornera and countries using the OCT.

Nerotysia[edit]

In the early 1900s, several communist and socialist countries throughout Ordis, led by Nerotysia, systematically rejected the Gregorian calendar and adopted a different calendar system, called the Ordic Revolutionary Calendar. This calendar is based off of a ten-hour, one hundred-minute day, which is totally incompatible with Ordic Common Time zones. This consequently means that the base unit of time measurement, the second, is totally different in Nerotysia and other Ordic Revolutionary Calendar-using countries than elsewhere in the world.
