The Military State of Osnos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ernst Alterman with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.661 billion Osnosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.4%.

The all-consuming Osnosian economy, worth 327 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 89,326 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osnos's national animal is the Sloth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Osnos is ranked 59,530th in the world and 2,094th in Balder for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,128.62 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
