The Holy Empire of Ostreia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Ruler Cornelius Varus with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.096 billion Ostreians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paviana. The average income tax rate is 77.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ostreian economy, worth 224 trillion Imperial marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,885 Imperial marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Ostreian grocery store, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and dreams of replicator technology have been dashed following a ban on 3D printers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostreia's national animal is the Imperial Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of the Cassia' Light.

Ostreia is ranked 48,294th in the world and 204th in Europe for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,731.09 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
