The Hyperborean State of Ostrinios is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ostyhan Ier with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.11 billion Ostriniosians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostrinopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostriniosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,869 trillion Aurums a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 230,556 Aurums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 984,526 per year while the poor average 34,666, a ratio of 28.4 to 1.

The sun now sets on the Ostriniosian Empire, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and life expectancy is way down but posthuman perfectionism is way up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ostrinios's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ostriniosism.

Ostrinios is ranked 171,039th in the world and 9,236th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
