|Leader||Rikard Vulf Dorias|
The State of Ostehaar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rikard Vulf Dorias with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.973 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 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Oster economy, worth 994 trillion Krotas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,633 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.
