The Império of Ossela is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by D Duarte Pio with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-working population of 1.181 billion Osselences have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vermoim. The average income tax rate is 46.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Osselan economy, worth 123 trillion Osselejoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,315 Osselejoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, Ateísmo Científico has been named as Ossela's national religion, and state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ossela's national animal is the Big Floppa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ateísmo Científico.

Ossela is ranked 23,221st in the world and 29th in Portugal for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 231.08 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
