The State of Ostehaar is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rikard Vulf Dorias with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.77 billion Osters are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Porohare. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Oster economy, worth 524 trillion Krotas a year, is 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 77,408 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 134,479th in the world and 251st in The Western Isles for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
