The Republic of St Oaks is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, fear of technology, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.934 billion Kolodziejzykians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolodziejzyk. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient St Oaksian economy, worth 406 trillion kollars 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, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. 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 103,264 kollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, lobster tastes best when it is red, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St Oaks's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kolodziejzykism.
