Oaks 105

Population2.512 billion


The Grace and Precision of Oaks 105 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.512 billion Oaks 105ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 46.9%.

The thriving Oaks 105ian economy, worth 156 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,148 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 105's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Oaks 105 is ranked 190,338th in the world and 5,566th in Artificial Solar System for Most Primitive, scoring -119.07 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
