The People's Republic of Ostrolia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Scott Morrison with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.952 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 73.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostrolian economy, worth 788 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 rampant. Average income is an impressive 199,618 Ostroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. 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 26,715th in the world and 1,290th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 30.4 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
