Oaks 55

Population6.801 billion


The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 55 is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.801 billion Oaks 55ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Public Transport receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 55ian economy, worth 664 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,668 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Parachutes are considered optional with the newest line of jet fighters, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, press conferences always end with standing ovations and rapturous applause, and wars are filled with soldiers wielding machetes and chainsaws for safety reasons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 55's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Oaks 55 is ranked 114,391st in the world and 4th in BallsMoment for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,070.18 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
