The Federal Republic of Oakow is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Joszek Dakowe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.26 billion Oakowians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oakowia. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oakowian economy, worth 192 trillion Rubeks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,796 Rubeks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oakow's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oakow is ranked 131,900th in the world and 22nd in Auralia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
