The Republic of Oral B is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.132 billion Oral Bians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 15.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Oral Bian economy, worth 252 trillion Dollars 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, Cheese Exports, 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 60,994 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, and aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Oral B's national animal is the plaque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Oral B is ranked 121,512th in the world and 24th in Xedas for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,020.82 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
