The Easter Egg Holy of Ostrovskiy is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Aaron Pokidov with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.515 billion ostrovskians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Denver. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient ostrovskian economy, worth 895 trillion Standard Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,366 Standard Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumor has it that Aaron Pokidov has won three lotteries in a row, bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, when their backs are against the walls ostrovskians look out for gay men, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostrovskiy's national animal is the moose cow easter egg thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ostrovskiy is ranked 239,088th in the world and 19th in The Slide Countries for Most Patriotic, with 1.82 flags saluted per person per day.
