The People's Republic of Ostrolia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Scott Morrison with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.643 billion Ostrolians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostrolian economy, worth 420 trillion Ostroes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,096 Ostroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 20,563rd in the world and 1,118th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 120.75 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
