The Interstellar Wastelands of Omicron Alpha is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by CEO Banks McGee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.439 billion Omicronians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gold Hills. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Omicronian economy, worth a remarkable 9,826 trillion chits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 386,295 chits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,601,493 per year while the poor average 3,687, a ratio of 976 to 1.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to, and parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Omicron Alpha's national animal is the skeleton, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Finance Church.

Omicron Alpha is ranked 264th in the world and 1st in The Milky Way Galaxy for Most Armed, with 41.54 Weapons Per Person.
