Jorji Costava describes Obristan as a good place. Obristan also comes off as more stable than war-torn Arstotzka. The inspector is given a choice to flee to Obristan, alone or with his family, when travel restrictions for Arstotzkan citizens are put in place on day 29. EZIC also evacuates the inspector's family to Obristan to safety in case he is arrested on day 23.
Obristan's motto is "Obristan above all." This is similar to Arstotzka's "Glory to Arstotzka," while also being geographically true.
