The Federal Republic of Hostelia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by PM Horváth Tamás with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 1.924 billion Hostelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rakaca. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hostelian economy, worth 236 trillion Krajcárs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 122,974 Krajcárs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The study of medicine is popular throughout Hostelia, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hostelia's national animal is the Snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hostelia is ranked 291,288th in the world and 1,454th in Europeia for Most Primitive, scoring -246.13 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
