The NPC of The Ostartic Federation is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Head Researcher Bryan Osley with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.123 billion Ostarticans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nosk's Landing. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The very strong Ostartic Federationian economy, worth 168 trillion Snowball Bills a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 79,487 Snowball Bills, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 233,848 per year while the poor average 21,275, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Ostartic Federation's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Börk Sect.

The Ostartic Federation is ranked 55,836th in the world and 2,463rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,722.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
