The Refugi Spirit of Oaks 209 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.712 billion Oaks 209ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.2%.

The thriving Oaks 209ian economy, worth 205 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, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. 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 75,670 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

AIs make up a majority of the long-term warehouse population, illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, racial supremacists have a burning desire to deal with immigrants, and the new Grand Inquisitor of Righteous Scientific Inquiry has ordered a surprising amount of hemlock. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 209's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Oaks 209 is ranked 168,828th in the world and 3,768th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
