St Oaks

Population6.814 billion



The Republic of St Oaks is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ko with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 6.814 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolodziejzyk. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient St Oaksian economy, worth 921 trillion kollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,190 kollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces". Crime 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 1,791st in the world and 183rd in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 53,317 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
