The Republic of Oceanic people is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Wohlwend with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.473 billion Oceanic peopleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Environment, although Education is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The enormous but inefficient Oceanic peoplean economy, worth a remarkable 2,339 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,161 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Half-submerged and flooded seaside hotels are technically still next to the beach, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, the lactose-intolerant are force-fed cheese products with predictably gassy results, and small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Oceanic peoplean sovereign territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Oceanic people's national animal is the albatross, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oceanic people is ranked 101,567th in the world and 3,909th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,543.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
