|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Most Noble Republican Union of Ostronopolis is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Regents Ulprus and Iaiose with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.237 billion Ostronopolians 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nakaplium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.
The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Nakaplium, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostronopolis's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Zeodiasianism, and its currency is the Kremos.
