Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Germano-Slavic Confederation of Ostrekoj is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tsühr Yuri Schneider II with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 3.771 billion Østrekoji are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schlafmund. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Østrekojic economy, worth 569 trillion Iuries a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,130 Iuries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime 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 129,333rd in the world and 6,714th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
