The Refugi Spirit of Oaks 224 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.987 billion Oaks 224ians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 74.6%.

The very strong Oaks 224ian economy, worth 310 trillion planets 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 large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. 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 62,293 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, the strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a falcon, and childhood friends of Leader are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 224's national animal is the falcon.

Oaks 224 is ranked 69,986th in the world and 2nd in EuropeLiberals for Highest Poor Incomes, with 31,301.87 Standard Monetary Units.
