The Federal Republic of Ostennia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Everett Joyner with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.175 billion Ostennians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ostennian economy, worth 77.8 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 66,227 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, where there's smoke there's the Ostennian Forestry Department, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostennia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Ostennia is ranked 124,153rd in the world and 16th in Mirror World for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 363.81 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
