The People's Republic of Ostrolia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Malcolm Turnbull with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.201 billion Ostrolians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 54.9%.

The all-consuming Ostrolian economy, worth 142 trillion Ostroes 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 impressive 118,729 Ostroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, gambling is outlawed, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostrolia's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ostrolia is ranked 88,087th in the world and 4,708th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 1,121.67 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
