Oaks 192

Population4.756 billion


The Grace and Precision of Oaks 192 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.756 billion Oaks 192ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 192ian economy, worth 394 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Soda Sales, Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 82,879 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Territories have the right to secede if they aren't happy, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, and those who cut young children are told to cut it out. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oaks 192's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Oaks 192 is ranked 154,044th in the world and 2,749th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 289.67 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
