Oaks 52

Population4.112 billion


The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 52 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.112 billion Oaks 52ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 72.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 52ian economy, worth 431 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,846 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to, citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, and returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 52's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Oaks 52 is ranked 170,920th in the world and 3,507th in Artificial Solar System for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 49.36 Whatever.
