The Divine People's Republic of St Oz is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Listener with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 31.693 billion Ozians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ozipol. The average income tax rate is 27.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient St Ozian economy, worth a remarkable 5,020 trillion Maritime Insurance Notes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,405 Maritime Insurance Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, there are no more heroes any more, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. St Oz's national animal is the Civet, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Gaeanism.

St Oz is ranked 176,311th in the world and 34th in Taijitu for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -13.24 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
