The Kingdom of Ozstan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Peter with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.709 billion Ozstanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Perth. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ozstanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,709 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,023 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The freedom to be free is always just out of reach, legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", even immigrants complain that immigrants keep taking their jobs, and citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ozstan's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ozstan is ranked 232,142nd in the world and 11,959th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.51 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
