The Holy Empire of Ostreia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Ruler Cornelius Varus with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.292 billion Ostreians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paviana. The average income tax rate is 77.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostreian economy, worth 245 trillion Imperial marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,932 Imperial marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military has declared that 'a woman's place is in the mess hall', prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and the nation's diplomats are all talk and no action. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostreia's national animal is the Imperial Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of the Cassia' Light.

Ostreia is ranked 68,383rd in the world and 446th in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 245 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
