The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 5 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.314 billion Oaks 5ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Oaks 5ian economy, worth 455 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,687 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Dissident voters are sent on a 'relaxing break' at the Ministry of Love, a lack of funding for new shows has turned television into 24/7 re-runs, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 5's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
