The Matriarchy of Ostavaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kristina Omi with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.772 billion Ostavarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rippia. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ostavarian economy, worth 246 trillion Osters a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 139,180 Osters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ostavaria's national animal is the Porpoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ostavaria is ranked 11,038th in the world and 345th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 87.7 quips per hour.
