The Republic of Oskenia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Paul Schaefer with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.146 billion Oskenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ypaæpilisa. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oskenian economy, worth 348 trillion Argælds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,796 Argælds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Class clowns are frequently listed among the most dangerous criminals in the nation, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, and the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oskenia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Oskenia is ranked 177,092nd in the world and 18th in APSIA for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.97 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
