The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 85 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.84 billion Oaks 85ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 85ian economy, worth 473 trillion planets a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,320 planets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

There are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, abacus sales outpace those of the personal computer following the closure of the Internet, nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, and fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 85's national animal is the falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Oaks 85 is ranked 182,543rd in the world and 3,545th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
