The Kingdom of East Oceania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Inge Barkisson with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 19.138 billion Oceanians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asbjørn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Oceanic economy, worth a remarkable 5,166 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 269,974 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bris parties are all the rage, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, and freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. East Oceania's national animal is the Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

East Oceania is ranked 975th in the world and 1st in Albion for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 17,939.75 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
