The United Socialist States of Oceania1 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 497 million Oceania1ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of There is no capital. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Oceania1ian economy, worth 13.9 trillion Big Brother dolars 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. 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 28,054 Big Brother dolars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, people who have lived their entire lives in Oceania1 are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and parachutes are considered optional with the newest line of jet fighters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oceania1's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oceania1 is ranked 64,511th in the world and 9th in Noxus pact for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,250.89 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
