Oaks 84

Population4.204 billion


The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 84 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.204 billion Oaks 84ians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 84ian economy, worth 467 trillion planets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 111,318 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, there's a bustling black market for vegetables, and pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 84's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oaks 84 is ranked 149,947th in the world and 3,120th in Artificial Solar System for Rudest Citizens, with 41.91 Insults Per Minute.
