The Incorporated States of Oscalantine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Executor Nathanial Nestor Kwon with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, vat-grown people, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 13.079 billion Corporate Descent 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nexus Sector 03. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient of Corporate Descent economy, worth a remarkable 5,345 trillion Nexus Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 408,720 Nexus Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

The military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents, and the booming slave trade is now government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Oscalantine's national animal is the Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Corporate Christianity.

Oscalantine is ranked 122,903rd in the world and 3,965th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 9.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
