The Queer Workers' Commune of Osito Libre is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Vanguard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.473 billion Ositoes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otterton. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The all-consuming Osito Librean economy, worth a remarkable 1,565 trillion cublets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,495 cublets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Osito Libre's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Automated Luxury Gay Space Communism.

Osito Libre is ranked 266,623rd in the world and 1,297th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -26.31 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
