The United Socialist States of Ostrolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Scott Morrison with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.516 billion Ostrolians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostrolian economy, worth 897 trillion Ostroes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 198,637 Ostroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostrolia's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ostrolia is ranked 3,512th in the world and 207th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.19 Years.
