The Democratic Federation of Oceanialia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 688 million Oceanialians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sydney. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oceanialian economy, worth 61.7 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 89,650 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oceanialia's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oceanialia is ranked 10,101st in the world and 483rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,715.62 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
