The Federation of Ossulu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vernon Xyaikon with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.31 billion Ossuluans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Risqué. The average income tax rate is 44.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ossuluan economy, worth 521 trillion Silvens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 157,441 Silvens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Ossuluan weed picker are way up, the full weight of the law is being applied against hate speech, first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, and constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas". Crime is moderate. Ossulu's national animal is the German Shepherd, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ossulu is ranked 17,712th in the world and 659th in Balder for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 4,873.26 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
