The Federalist Republic of Ostellan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by David Thompson with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.337 billion Ostellanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nightfall. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostellandish economy, worth 137 trillion ₳oltes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,727 ₳oltes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, parking's carefree without parking car fees, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and CEOs are forced to cut coupons during important conference calls to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostellan's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ostellan is ranked 9,108th in the world and 209th in the West Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 14.34 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
