Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Germano-Slavic Confederation of Ostrekoj is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsühr Yuri Schneider II with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 4.113 billion Ĝstrekoji love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schlafmund. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ĝstrekojic economy, worth 675 trillion Iuries a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,123 Iuries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the nation is proudly the least fertile in The North Pacific, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism. 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 3,693rd in the world and 180th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 408.62 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
