The CTE of Osiris-Rex is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The democratic, devout population of 749 million CTES 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CTE. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient CTE economy, worth 90.2 trillion CTES a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,419 CTES, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and CTE is a police state during international summits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osiris-Rex's national animal is the CTE, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Osiris-Rex is ranked 97,210th in the world and 5,125th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 179.08 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
