The Sovereign State of Osea Island is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Emperor of Osea with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.669 billion Oseans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympia. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.
The all-consuming Osea Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,814 trillion Osean dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,663 Osean dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Osea Islandian Space Agency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osea Island's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is secularism.
