The North Usonean Reich of Oskarheim is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Monika Schneider with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.341 billion Oskaari 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Winona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.5%.

The strong Oskaari economy, worth 115 trillion Marks 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. 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 86,191 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oskarheim's national animal is the Oskish Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Oskaari Pantheon.

Oskarheim is ranked 22,255th in the world and 890th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,975.19 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
