The Holy Imperium of Ostermarch is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Maximilian with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.717 billion Imperials are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Escorial. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 3,711 trillion crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 425,764 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and people are often woken up by rubbish music. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostermarch's national animal is the demigryph, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Ostermarch is ranked 3,407th in the world and 42nd in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 3,711 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
