The Republic of St Oaks is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ko with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 4.455 billion Kolodziejzykians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolodziejzyk. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient St Oaksian economy, worth 500 trillion kollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 112,390 kollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and awkward tourists are offered the 'unique experience' of rodeo clown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. St Oaks's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kolodziejzykism.

St Oaks is ranked 5,072nd in the world and 152nd in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,092.28 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
