LeaderOstyhan Ier


The Hyperborean State of Ostrinios is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ostyhan Ier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.186 billion Ostriniosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrinopolis. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostriniosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,899 trillion Aurums a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 264,276 Aurums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ostriniosian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, and the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 95,060th in the world and 5,745th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 32,505.96 Standard Monetary Units.
