The City by the Sea of Oostende is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dikke Mathile with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.283 billion Oostendeans 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, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oostende City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.1%.

The very strong Oostendean economy, worth a remarkable 1,761 trillion Zs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 79,063 Zs, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, it is illegal to own a mobile phone, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, and the government seizes the property of the recently deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oostende's national animal is the Shrimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zeeism.

Oostende is ranked 169,260th in the world and 67th in Vlaanderen for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
