The Holy and Venerable Horde of Ostroeuropa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Inquisitor-Khan Prance Rayder with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 31.152 billion Ostroeuropans 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Canterlot. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostroeuropan economy, worth an astonishing 10,297 trillion Ration Shekels 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. 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 330,544 Ration Shekels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, nations across the world are quick to praise Grand Inquisitor-Khan Prance Rayder's good looks and intellectual prowess, and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. Crime is totally unknown. Ostroeuropa's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Discordianism.

Ostroeuropa is ranked 75,766th in the world and 3rd in Driselbia for Most Conservative, scoring 61.46 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
