The Volstokn Recuperating Lands of Oskarheim is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Monika Schneider with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.046 billion Oskaari 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, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Winona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.3%.

The very strong Oskaari economy, worth 213 trillion Marks 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 impressive 104,108 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Nations across the world are quick to praise Empress Monika Schneider's good looks and intellectual prowess, Oskarheim is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, commemoration of the Great The North Pacific War costs almost as much as the war itself, and billions of Marks are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oskarheim's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Oskaari Paganism.

Oskarheim is ranked 133,644th in the world and 6,752nd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -157.97 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
