Oaks 4

Population6.827 billion


The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 4 is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.827 billion Oaks 4ians 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 Industry, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 4ian economy, worth 737 trillion planets a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,013 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Press conferences always end with standing ovations and rapturous applause, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, and morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 4's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Oaks 4 is ranked 247,935th in the world and 5,027th in Artificial Solar System for Least Corrupt Governments, with 51.59 percentage of bribes refused.
