The Refugi Spirit of Oaks 273

Location: Artificial Solar System
Regional Influence: Nipper
The Refugi Spirit of Oaks 273 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, disturbing lack of elderly people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.986 billion Oaks 273ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Administration, although Defense, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.7%.
The powerhouse Oaks 273ian economy, worth 510 trillion planets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 102,372 planets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 458,619 per year while the poor average 14,147, a ratio of 32.4 to 1.
Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, children are encouraged to fail at school so as not to appear too enlightened, the secret ingredient is love (and MSG), and truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Oaks 273's national animal is the goose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
