The Shattered Visage of Ozymandias Egypticus is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Osiris with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.173 billion Ozymandias Egyptica are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ozymandias Egyptican economy, worth 715 trillion grains of sand a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 58,779 grains of sand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ozymandias Egypticus's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Ozymandias Egypticus is ranked 20,991st in the world and 1st in Ozymandias for Largest Black Market, with 19.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
