The Gestalt Consciousness of Oldmanzakk is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.475 billion Oldmen are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zetapolis. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Oldmanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,335 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 178,658 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nations that kill an Oldman can expect a strongly worded letter, being dead no longer has any benefits, tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Credit treacle machine. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oldmanzakk's national animal is the Giant Oldmanian Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oldmanzakk is ranked 4,252nd in the world and 4th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 556.75 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
