The Grace and Precision of Oaks 189 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.819 billion Oaks 189ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.8%.

The strong Oaks 189ian economy, worth 106 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 58,305 planets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 214,322 per year while the poor average 11,216, a ratio of 19.1 to 1.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, the nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, and this year's televised Budget Forecast has been cancelled because there was already one last year. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oaks 189's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oaks 189 is ranked 24,654th in the world and 395th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Black Market, with 13.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
