The Free Land of Osiris Communications Service is a large, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 87 million Osiris Communications Serviceans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Osiris Communications Servicean economy, worth 1.54 trillion Bureaucracy Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 17,706 Bureaucracy Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime is totally unknown. Osiris Communications Service's national animal is the Scarab, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Osiris Communications Service is ranked 39,740th in the world and 1,352nd in Osiris for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 44.01 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
