The Grace and Precision of Oaks 150 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.906 billion Oaks 150ians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.6%.

The powerhouse Oaks 150ian economy, worth 130 trillion planets a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,300 planets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 208,962 per year while the poor average 17,292, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

The seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, territories have the right to secede if they aren't happy, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, and wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 150's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Oaks 150 is ranked 79,843rd in the world and 1,477th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,617.92 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
