The Empire of Ostrinios is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ostyhan Ier with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.01 billion Ostriniosians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrinopolis. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostriniosian economy, worth 957 trillion Aurums 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. 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 191,157 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", Ostriniosians have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Cat Lasagne is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostrinios's national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ostriniosism.

Ostrinios is ranked 146,062nd in the world and 7,898th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 68.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
