The Kingdom of East Oceania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Inge Barkisson with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.098 billion Oceanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asbjørn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oceanic economy, worth a remarkable 4,602 trillion Kroner a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 269,177 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and school football matches are usually five-a-side. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. East Oceania's national animal is the Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

East Oceania is ranked 51,645th in the world and 11th in Albion for Most Pro-Market, scoring 55.89 on the Rand Index.
