Oswald State Correctional Facility

CapitalEm City
LeaderKareem Sad


The Cell Blocks of Oswald State Correctional Facility is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kareem Sad with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.087 billion Facilityians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Em City. The average income tax rate is 47.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Oswald State Correctional Facilityian economy, worth 87.8 trillion hacks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 80,744 hacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oswald State Correctional Facility's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oswald State Correctional Facility is ranked 25,027th in the world and 29th in Thalassia for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 75.64 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
