The United Socialist States of Ostrolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Scott Morrison with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.671 billion Ostrolians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostrolian economy, worth 928 trillion Ostroes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 198,679 Ostroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostrolia's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ostrolia is ranked 13,692nd in the world and 642nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7,733.54 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
