The Dominion of Freistaat-Ostafrika is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Friedrich Luxenberg with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.339 billion Ostafrikans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dar es Salaam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostafrikan economy, worth 616 trillion Ostafrikan Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 115,469 Ostafrikan Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 449,121 per year while the poor average 20,298, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

Cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, and Friedrich Luxenberg has just been declared ruler of Freistaat-Ostafrika in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freistaat-Ostafrika's national animal is the elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Freistaat-Ostafrika is ranked 208,806th in the world and 8,343rd in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -8.94 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
