The Republic of Oslasa36 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.953 billion Oslasa36ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 92.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Oslasa36ian economy, worth 869 trillion rubles 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. 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 an impressive 175,562 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, and knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oslasa36's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Oslasa36 is ranked 42,351st in the world and 1,343rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,307.33 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
