The Federal Republic of Ostennia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Everett Joyner with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.444 billion Ostennians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ostennian economy, worth 102 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 70,781 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostennia's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Ostennia is ranked 27,563rd in the world and 6th in Mirror World for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,744.2 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
