The Refugi Spirit of Oaks 205 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.26 billion Oaks 205ians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.1%.

The powerhouse Oaks 205ian economy, worth 281 trillion planets a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,319 planets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 277,631 per year while the poor average 20,327, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing Leader to progressive thinkers, cute fluffy little Leaders are increasingly popular exotic pets, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 205's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Oaks 205 is ranked 218,065th in the world and 4,163rd in Artificial Solar System for Most Inclusive, scoring 70.4 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
