Oceania became a dangerous world power and reality on the Atlantic Ocean British colony islands of St. Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. Oceania became a major power in the 1990s when these islands broke away from England as a result of the British Nationality Act of 1981. The island group's capital of Jamestown was allowed a Governor/Commander-In-Chief for their combined governments, but with the Act causing islanders to loose their 'British abode' province, the islands slowly crept into despair, poverty and chaos.
In 2001, after Earth won against a massive and globally devastating alien invasion by the Soltan Star Empire, a newly elected Governor, George Winston Goldstein, seceded the islands from the British and created "Oceania". England sent her few operational warships (most of the fleet was severely damaged during the alien invasion) to Oceania to stop the secession, only to be met with surprisingly superior firepower; firepower no single intelligence agency every knew of before this. Oceania turned away the British, and since then have started a slow, yet successful crusade to spread their dangerous militaristic socialist politics throughout the world. As a result, Goldstein eventually, through propaganda, was deemed as Oceania's "Big Brother".
The new Oceania society structure is roughly based on George Orwell's "1984" society, however, in this Oceania, there was an industrial might, a strong military, and nuclear power capability.
The people, or "Proles" of Oceania all work in tough conditions, enacting as skilled laborers, but are allowed the freedom of pornography, alcohol and certain acts of misconduct.
The Outer Party consists of supervisors and those requiring managerial skills and are scrutinized the worst. The Inner Party entrusts the Outer Party to perform their demands without question. Any caught questioning the order of things is brought to 're-education' rooms.
The Inner Party is rarely if ever seen, and constitutes the Ministry leaders and their associates. These are the ones controlling everything in Oceania, all led by Goldstein/Big Brother.
Citizens all receive the same luxuries and living conditions (as far as they know).
Oceania as a whole, is totally self sufficient for power, communications, food and resources.
Oceania's power comes from two nuclear reactors built on each island, located in the heart of each major city of the islands.
Oceania has total control of information as well.
These 'heroes' are used to combat any potential ultra-national super-powered hero incursion, as well as propaganda throughout Oceania.
As of 2013, Oceania has maintained control of their nation's might with over 2.5 million citizens, most in the military. They have now started spreading their socialism to African and South American nations.
