The Matriarchy of Ostavaria is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kristina Omi with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.577 billion Ostavarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rippia. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostavarian economy, worth 220 trillion Osters a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,729 Osters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Oster mansions, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostavaria's national animal is the Porpoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ostavaria is ranked 54,945th in the world and 1,454th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 18.3 flags saluted per person per day.
