Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Ostrinios is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ostyhan Ier with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.654 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 Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrinopolis. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostriniosian economy, worth 812 trillion Aurums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 174,664 Aurums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. 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 162,471st in the world and 8,725th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -16.76 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
