The People's Republic of Ostrolia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Malcolm Turnbull with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, avowedly heterosexual populace, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.74 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostrolian economy, worth 248 trillion Ostroes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 142,573 Ostroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have an obligation to remain silent and anything they say may be used against them, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, Ostrolian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. 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 33,363rd in the world and 1,563rd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,876.84 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
