The Holy Empire of Oracle is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Hyperion with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service and frequent executions. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.795 billion Disciples are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delphi. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Oraclean economy, worth 458 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 58,762 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The military has quashed a recent coup attempt, recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Lord Hyperion's eyes only', Lord Hyperion is the self-declared God of all Oracle, and Lord Hyperion has just been declared ruler of Oracle in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Oracle's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Oraclism.

Oracle is ranked 226,760th in the world and 7th in Island of Atlas for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.26 percentage of bribes refused.
