The Most Serene Republic of Ostnea is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.664 billion Ostneans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostnea City. The average income tax rate is 57.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ostnean economy, worth 160 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,477 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most ambassadors from Ostnea retire only a few years after being appointed, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown. Ostnea's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ostnea is ranked 119,145th in the world and 3,492nd in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -7.77 on the Hayek Index.
