The Half-Sunken Shattered Visage of Ozymandias Egypticus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Osiris with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.746 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 large, 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 43.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ozymandias Egyptican economy, worth 614 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 57,216 grains of sand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There are no more heroes any more, nude art is becoming wildly popular, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Ozymandias Egypticus is ranked 79,596th in the world and 1st in Ozymandias for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 4,005.29 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
