Oaks 22

Population4.331 billion


The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 22 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.331 billion Oaks 22ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 22ian economy, worth 553 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 127,894 planets, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Oddly simian-looking religious thugs beat up anyone who suggests humans are related to monkeys, people choose marriage partners by buying a lottery ticket, baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 22's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oaks 22 is ranked 36,437th in the world and 89th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Economic Output, with 553 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
