The US State of Oscadan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 613 million Oscadanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carrie. The average income tax rate is 10.0%.

The strong Oscadanian economy, worth 44.4 trillion USDS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,446 USDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, GP clinics are inundated by patients requesting prescriptions for alcohol, retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. Crime is almost non-existent. Oscadan's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Oscadan is ranked 109,910th in the world and 43rd in United States of America for Most Influential, scoring 211 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
