St Oaks

Population6.364 billion



The Republic of St Oaks is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ko with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.364 billion Kolodziejzykians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolodziejzyk. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient St Oaksian economy, worth 839 trillion kollars a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 131,851 kollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

More citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of St Oaksian Embarrassments, and residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants. 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 178,391st in the world and 7,145th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
