The Empire of The Oceanic Lands is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 616 million Oceanic Landsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 21.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Oceanic Landsian economy, worth 65.2 trillion Oceanic francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 105,791 Oceanic francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Walrus Dung" has been declared a national treasure, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and luxury condos have arisen from the ashes of demolished houses of worship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Oceanic Lands's national animal is the Walrus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Oceanic Lands is ranked 33,777th in the world and 1,682nd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 161.3 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
