The Queen's State of Ossewingo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.056 billion Ossewingoans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The very strong Ossewingoan economy, worth 590 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 42,011 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 285,625 per year while the poor average 2,257, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ossewingo's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ossewingo is ranked 202,992nd in the world and 5th in Tifariti for Lowest Crime Rates, with 34.52 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
