The Grace and Precision of Oaks 174
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: Confederation of Recklessness
Regional Influence: Duckspeaker
The Grace and Precision of Oaks 174 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.995 billion Oaks 174ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Oaks 174ian economy, worth 488 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,843 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
Students do more community service than homework, heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, and Oaks 174ians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 174's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
