The Worker's State of Ostvolksrepublik is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Volkscouncil with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.154 billion Ostvolkans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Junistadt. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ostvolkisch economy, worth 64.0 trillion Stahldollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 55,436 Stahldollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostvolksrepublik's national animal is the Volkshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ostvolksrepublik is ranked 113,238th in the world and 6th in the Monads for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.07 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
