The People's Republic of Ostrolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Scott Morrison with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.209 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 large, 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 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostrolian economy, worth 556 trillion Ostroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,387 Ostroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, every week is blindness awareness week, and the fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Ostrolians into bankruptcy. 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 157,281st in the world and 7,959th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.56 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
