The Blessed Isles of Okayanos is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.082 billion Okeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradise. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Okean economy, worth 323 trillion Koyins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,654 Koyins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bruised children are made to thank their bullies for the valuable life lessons, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Leader wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Okayanos's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Okayanos is ranked 172,680th in the world and 5,589th in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 19.67 on the Hayek Index.
