Electronics Industry of Ostehaar: Smart and to the Point

"Between 1900 and 1919 the nation went through accelerated industrialization and modernization. The radio and electronics industry of Ostehaar was founded, as well as the military equipment and diamond industries."
- From Ostehaar's historical timeline

"The nation's main export and an apparent source of pride for Osters, is the high-technology electronics industry, specializing in integrated circuits (microcircuits and nanocircuits) and printed circuit boards. Ostehaar's electronics industry also produces high-quality avionics for military aircrafts, weapon guidance systems, and other military electronics."
- From Ostehaar's economic factbook entry

"Osters consider themselves to be very educated people, and they take pride in the fact that the leading industry in Ostehaar is the high-technology electronics industry."

Additionally, the nations of marked by a * are currently a home to production centers of several Oster companies, including Oster Electronics Industries, Waterfall Electronics, Tohver, EE Industries, Vikheh, and MetaCon.


History

Oster electronics firms originally began to form in the 1910's. In 1913 Oster Radio Industries (ORI) was founded, followed by EE Industries in 1918. The number of internationally successful firms grew slowly, with only one or two new successful firms each year until the early 1960's. In the 1970's more commercial innovations began, many of which were based on military R&D. The 1990's saw the real takeoff of high-tech industries in Ostehaar.

For more than 90 years local demand fueled Oster industrial expansion, as the country's population grew rapidly and the standard of living rose. More recently, world demand for advanced technologies, software, electronics, and other sophisticated equipment has stimulated industrial growth. Ostehaar's high status in new technologies is the result of its emphasis on higher education and research and development. The government also assists industrial growth by providing low-rate loans from its development budget. Also, many international technology companies have research and development facilities in this area.

A High-tech center near Saard, central Ostehaar

The "Lindastir-Saard Hub" (nicknamed "LinSaa Hub") is an area with a high concentration of high-tech industries, in the plains around the rivers Khiser, Mert, and Volakh, in central Ostehaar, similar to Silicon Valley in California, in the United States. The area covers a large portion of the country although especially high concentrations of high-tech industry can be found in the area around Lindastir and Saard.

More recent high-tech establishments have been raised in the capital Porohare, and in cities such as Savarehat up in the north part of the country.
