The Federal Republic of Ostennia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Everett Joyner with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.248 billion Ostennians 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, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ostennian economy, worth 88.0 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 70,486 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Where there's smoke there's the Ostennian Forestry Department, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostennia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Ostennia is ranked 119,768th in the world and 15th in Mirror World for Most Pacifist, with 64.49 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
