Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Ostrinios is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ostyhan Ier with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.973 billion Ostriniosians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrinopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostriniosian economy, worth 752 trillion Aurums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 189,484 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, aides are afraid to ask if Ostyhan Ier wants a cup of tea or coffee, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostrinios's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ostriniosism.

Ostrinios is ranked 157,909th in the world and 8,356th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -602.42 on the Hayek Index.
