The Holy Imperium of Ostermarch is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maximilian with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.301 billion Imperials 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Escorial. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 4,985 trillion crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 441,131 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (Ostermarch has found 2 easter eggs), blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ostermarch's national animal is the demigryph, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Ostermarch is ranked 9,959th in the world and 182nd in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 92.54 quips per hour.
