The Republic of Custom Pretitle of Ostko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hjemmet til de velstående with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.821 billion Ostkoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vesper Bay. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ostkoan economy, worth 133 trillion oshrs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,058 oshrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Straitjackets are a common religious garb, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, and a major religion has been named as Ostko's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostko's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ostko is ranked 26,162nd in the world and 832nd in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,259.2 Tourists Per Hour.
