The Kingdom of Ozstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Peter with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.332 billion Ozstanians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Perth. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ozstanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,338 trillion crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,393 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, large areas of Ozstan are not accessible by the public, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ozstan's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ozstan is ranked 64,567th in the world and 2,353rd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 177,429 Standard Monetary Units.
