The Hyperborean State of Ostrinios is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ostyhan Ier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.552 billion Ostriniosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Administration and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrinopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.7%.

The all-consuming Ostriniosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,824 trillion Aurums a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 241,627 Aurums, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet, and the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 123,908th in the world and 6,715th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 12.17 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
