Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Ostrinios is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ostyhan Ier with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, avowedly heterosexual populace, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.28 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 medium-sized, 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 87.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostriniosian economy, worth 866 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 amazing 202,540 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Ostrinopolis, auditors are gutting every governmental department, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Cat. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ostriniosism.

Ostrinios is ranked 2,153rd in the world and 55th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 32,724 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
