The Dominion of Freistaat-Ostafrika is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Friedrich Luxenberg with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.233 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 17.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostafrikan economy, worth 953 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 115,774 Ostafrikan Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 452,061 per year while the poor average 20,223, a ratio of 22.4 to 1.

The police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, Friedrich Luxenberg has just been declared ruler of Freistaat-Ostafrika in an international press conference, polite commuters on the Dar Es Salaam Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. 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 176,628th in the world and 8,165th in The East Pacific for Most Average, scoring 31.13 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
