The Oshian Federation

Population3.85 billion

LeaderPresident Lyndon McCormick


The Commonwealth of The Oshian Federation is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Lyndon McCormick with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.85 billion Oseans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oured. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Osean economy, worth 368 trillion Zollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,735 Zollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sex changes are routinely performed at The Oshian Federation's hospitals, President Lyndon McCormick's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Oshian Federation's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Oshian Federation is ranked 103,390th in the world and 2nd in Omstarks Puppet Storage for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 140,969 Standard Monetary Units.
