The State of Ostehaar is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rikard Vulf Dorias with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.429 billion Osters are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porohare. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Oster economy, worth 500 trillion Krotas a year, is 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 77,817 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 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.

Ostehaar is ranked 155,085th in the world and 242nd in The Western Isles for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
