The Commonwealth of Olestianda is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 118 million Olestiandans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.
The very strong Olestiandan economy, worth 7.70 trillion ques a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 65,236 ques, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 199,284 per year while the poor average 16,552, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.
All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Olestianda's national animal is the horse.
