Oaks 34

Population4.32 billion


The Hundred Oaker Wood of Oaks 34 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.32 billion Oaks 34ians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 34ian economy, worth 641 trillion planets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 148,497 planets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 966,386 per year while the poor average 9,062, a ratio of 106 to 1.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, the government is reining in public spending, politicians literally speak literally, and government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 34's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Oaks 34 is ranked 31,138th in the world and 53rd in Artificial Solar System for Highest Economic Output, with 641 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
