The Technocracy of Ozzy is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Radiant Aegis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.451 billion Ozzalonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ozboro. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ozzalonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,270 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 306,591 Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,287,299 per year while the poor average 47,454, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists, politicians tack on a service charge for assisting with casework, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, and it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ozzy's national animal is the Orange and white cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Ozzy is ranked 4,593rd in the world and 2nd in The Empire of Friendship for Most Developed, scoring 94.44 on the Human Development Index.
