The Republic of Oreo States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Macho Man with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.157 billion Oreo Statesians 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 relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Whitesburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Oreo Statesian economy, worth 794 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 251,578 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,472,061 per year while the poor average 20,165, a ratio of 73.0 to 1.

Package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group, half of Oreo States just lost MyFace after space debris collided with a major communications satellite, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Oreo States's national animal is the Kitten, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Billyianity.

Oreo States is ranked 24,175th in the world and 896th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,458.94 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
