The Incorporated States of Oscalantine is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Executor Nathanial Nestor Kwon with an even hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 14.152 billion Corporate Descent are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business 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 5,725 trillion Nexus Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 404,547 Nexus Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,457,676 per year while the poor average 80,283, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones, all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, the government has returned all business to private ownership, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. 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 133,678th in the world and 4,734th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.04 Stalins.
