The Disputed Territories of Oldwick is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sir Alan Partridge of Kipling with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.099 billion Oldwickians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norwich. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Oldewiccan economy, worth 161 trillion candles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 52,157 candles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The only things written in the stars are arrest warrants for astrologers, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oldwick's national animal is the sea dog.

Oldwick is ranked 97,912th in the world and 5th in Lewisham for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,747.86 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
