The Kingdom of East Oceania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Inge Barkisson with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 22.987 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, prioritizes Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. 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 6,195 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 269,538 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Inge Barkisson has been nicknamed 'Robomop', home renovation projects take decades to complete, those who cut young children are told to cut it out, and young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo. 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 5,368th in the world and 4th in Albion for Smartest Citizens, with 123.68 quips per hour.
