The Armed Republic of Mossy-Oak is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 134 million Mossy-Oakians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The powerhouse Mossy-Oakian economy, worth 12.8 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,291 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Bounty hunters have been dispatched to hunt down rogue bounty hunters, robosexual marriages are increasingly common, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and disputed territories across The East Pacific are being claimed by Mossy-Oakian college students. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Mossy-Oak's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mossy-Oak is ranked 80,134th in the world and 3,260th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,246.07 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
