The Dominion of Freistaat-Ostafrika is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Friedrich Luxenberg with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.273 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 18.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostafrikan economy, worth 374 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 114,541 Ostafrikan Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 445,513 per year while the poor average 20,134, 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 24,372nd in the world and 875th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 71.67 on the Rand Index.
