|Leader||Rikard Vulf Dorias|
The State of Ostehaar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rikard Vulf Dorias with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.081 billion Osters love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porohare. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Oster economy, worth 923 trillion Krotas a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,403 Krotas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostehaar's national animal is the Mountain Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
