The Republic of Osbedove is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.44 billion Osbedoveans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Osbedovean economy, worth 635 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,808 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, the nation has dismantled its entire WMD arsenal, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and the Osbedove City XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Osbedove's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Osbedove is ranked 37,613th in the world and 69th in Soviet Democracy for Most Influential, scoring 495 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
