The Hundred Oaker Forest of Oaks 67 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.867 billion Oaks 67ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Oaks 67ian economy, worth 344 trillion planets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 120,074 planets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 364,033 per year while the poor average 30,798, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oaks 67's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oaks 67 is ranked 205,073rd in the world and 3,771st in The City of Ba Sing Se for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -8.85 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
