The Kingdom of Ozstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Peter with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.863 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 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ozstanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,875 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and the flesh-eating lost souls that wander at night serve as a major tourist attraction (Ozstan has found 1 easter egg). 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 20,068th in the world and 729th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,819.51 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
