The Philosophiae Monarchy of OspasiA is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sri Sultan Archadia with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.627 billion Spasians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mangkujagad. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient OspasiAian economy, worth a remarkable 1,085 trillion Zenies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,784 Zenies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Mangkujagad River, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Spasians, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. OspasiA's national animal is the White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Kejawen.

OspasiA is ranked 169,649th in the world and 5,082nd in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 13.49 on the Hayek Index.
