The Republic of St Oaks is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ko with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, devout population of 4.777 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kolodziejzyk. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient St Oaksian economy, worth 540 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 113,073 kollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. 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 6,720th in the world and 212th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 90.16 on the Human Development Index.
