The Senatorial Badger Republic of Oateria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Koros Van Bamber with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.881 billion Oaterians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raziel. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oaterian economy, worth 528 trillion Clidens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 136,134 Clidens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Oateria's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oateria is ranked 114,942nd in the world and 44th in Cape of Good Hope for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 41,793.22 Standard Monetary Units.
