The Orwellian Dictatorship of The English Socialist Union of Oceania is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Big Brother with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.282 billion Oceanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Oceanian economy, worth 160 trillion Victory Dollars 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 70,428 Victory Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants, troublemakers just happen to be reassigned to distant mining operations, and ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The English Socialist Union of Oceania's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is English Socialism.
