The Germano-Slavic Confederation of Ostrekoj is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Tsühr Yuri Schneider II with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.557 billion Ĝstrekoji 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 Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schlafmund. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ĝstrekojic economy, worth a remarkable 1,709 trillion Iuries a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,861 Iuries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Ĝstrekoji, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Schlafmund to enjoy their national art, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostrekoj's national animal is the Orcinus Flumina, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ostrekoj is ranked 8,543rd in the world and 238th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Average Incomes, with 178,861.44 Standard Monetary Units.
