The North Usonean Reich of Oskarheim is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Monika Schneider with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.696 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Winona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.0%.

The very strong Oskaari economy, worth 163 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, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 96,625 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy. 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 66,842nd in the world and 3,742nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,409.68 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
