|Leader||Rikard Vulf Dorias|
The State of Ostehaar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Rikard Vulf Dorias with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.609 billion Osters are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Oster economy, worth 944 trillion Krotas a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,902 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.
