The Democratic Republic of Ostennia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sergio Espinar with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.08 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 Ostennia City. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ostennian economy, worth 143 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 69,017 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostennia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Ostennia is ranked 43,555th in the world and 10th in Mirror World for Most Developed, scoring 67.83 on the Human Development Index.
