The Ancient Empire of Oceanus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by High Councillor Atlas with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 20.593 billion Oceanusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantus. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Oceanusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,317 trillion Aurichalcums a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,088 Aurichalcums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, parking's carefree without parking car fees, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oceanus's national animal is the Aketas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oceanus is ranked 7,152nd in the world and 23rd in Antarctica for Largest Populations, with 20.6 billion Capita.
