The Queer Workers' Commune of Osito Libre is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Vanguard with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.249 billion Ositoes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otterton. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The all-consuming Osito Librean economy, worth a remarkable 1,541 trillion cublets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,813 cublets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osito Libre's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism.

Osito Libre is ranked 34,288th in the world and 425th in 10000 Islands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.67 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
