Oaks 73

Population6.709 billion


The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 73 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.709 billion Oaks 73ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 73ian economy, worth 822 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an impressive 122,640 planets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 395,723 per year while the poor average 28,744, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

The state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult, and Oaks 73's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 73's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oaks 73 is ranked 231,612th in the world and 20th in Onionistlands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.45 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
