The Orwellian Dictatorship of The English Socialist Union of Oceania is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Big Brother with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.468 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 73.3%.

The strong Oceanian economy, worth 316 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 70,805 Victory Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders. 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.

The English Socialist Union of Oceania is ranked 227,314th in the world and 159th in Changuu for Nudest, with zero Cheeks Per Square Mile.
