The People's Republic of Ostrolia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Malcolm Turnbull with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.296 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 Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ostrolian economy, worth 357 trillion Ostroes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,824 Ostroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
If they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, Jennifer Government is banned, and the government seizes the property of the recently deceased. 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.
