The Disputed Territories of Oldwick is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Alan Partridge of Kipling with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.921 billion Oldwickians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norwich. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Oldewiccan economy, worth 85.0 trillion candles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 44,252 candles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, and helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oldwick's national animal is the sea dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Oldwick is ranked 193,076th in the world and 9th in Lewisham for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.39 crimes per hour.
