The Federal Republic of Oyste is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Federal Council with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.351 billion Oysteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cambridge. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Oystean economy, worth 181 trillion Oysters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 134,549 Oysters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Oyste. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oyste's national animal is the Oyster, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Oyste is ranked 105,870th in the world and 1,185th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,454.56 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
