|Leader||Hjemmet til de velstående|
The Republic of Custom Pretitle of Ostko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hjemmet til de velstående with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.236 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 medium-sized 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 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Ostkoan economy, worth 93.3 trillion oshrs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,449 oshrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cars are banned, straitjackets are a common religious garb, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets. 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.
