Like Mr. Rossi said, Outland is just a chunk of Dranor. Immagine, if you will, that the region was a MASSIVE world, about the size of our own, or azeroth. Blade's Edge likely didn't directly boarder Zangermarsh with their diverse ecosystems, they were likely miles and miles apart. Thunderlord and Laughing Skull orcs probably hardly ever met under normal circumstances. How we got from a full and diverse world to a tiny and absurdly diverse world is that Nehr'zul inadvertently split the world in his mad bid for power and freedom from Kil'jaeden. In doing so he also drew the surviving fragments, which included the dark portal, together to form modern outland. This way, think of Nagrand as the orc's paradise, a fertile, perfect hunting ground where they could meet, trade, play, play-fight, and commune while feeling no want. It's quite possible that the Frostwolves were simply the closest clan. Garadar was simply formed as a refuge for the sickly and most elderly, and only came into its own as a village and settlement once the Horde left, and they weren't being raided for their supplies and most-able warriors. The only reason nagrand is so hale and hearty now is that it's had several years of being the only part of outland relatively unravaged by the legion or the Fel-Horde, and K'ure's energy is restoring it. Presumably with the death of Murmer in the Shadow Labyrinth as well as the death of Exarch Maladar, the region around Auchendoun will also begin to return to health. That is, assuming the sand-gnomes can be kept in check...
