The Guy in a Boat Near the Ruins of Ossitania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Guy in the Boat with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 9.633 billion Ossitanians 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Boat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.1%.
The large but sluggish Ossitanian economy, worth 365 trillion fresh tasty clams a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,948 fresh tasty clams, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.
Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime is totally unknown. Ossitania's national animal is the nearby shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.
