About Oceania

HISTORY OF OCEANIA

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".


Oceania Social Structure

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.

 


Ministry of Heroes (minihero)

The Minihero controls a super-powered contingent of "Champions of Oceania". 

These 'heroes' are used to combat any potential ultra-national super-powered hero incursion, as well as propaganda throughout Oceania.

  
Most of Oceania's heroes are  brainwashed super-powered citizens, with no will of their own. 
 
Oceania's 'heroes' cannot be reasoned with.  All are completely dedicated to Oceania.
 


Ministry of Love (miniluv)

Miniluv, as it is referred to, enforces loyalty and love of Big Brother through fear, a repressive apparatus, and brainwashing.
 
A bit different from Orwell's book, the miniluv allows citizens to be arranged to 'procreate' once every 3 months. Women are required to bear children as early as age 16. All children, once born, are taken from the parents and sent to 'birthing centers' where Oceania basically sequesters the newborns and children and brainwashes them into subservience.

It is largely responsible for the practice and infliction of misery, fear, suffering, and torture. Its ultimate purpose is to instill love of Big Brother in the minds of thought-criminals.

Miniluv is also responsible for providing 'pornography' as rewards for good work.  It is strictly controlled, yet is incentive for many workers.  For those that 'report' others for thought-crimes or sex-crimes, Proles can be allowed 'Two minute Choice' of watching a woman (or man) lusted after, usually from a shower camera.  This unto itself, draws many seedy people to want to 'work' in Oceania from abroad. Once they arrive, they are treated to these 'rewards', and summarily 're-educated' for their ungood thoughts thereafter.
 


Ministry of Peace (minipax)

Named the exact opposite of what it does, since the Ministry of Peace is in charge of maintaining a state of war.
 
As one of the obvious phrases, the meaning of peace has been equalized with the meaning of war in the slogan of the party, which is "War is Life ".
 
The military is over 2 million strong, which is amazing since in 2000, the combined populations of St. Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha were no more than 5,000 people. There is rumor that illegal cloning practices are being used to create Oceania's military.
 


Ministry of Plenty (miniplenty)

Miniplenty oversees public access to food, supplies, and goods. It is also in charge of rationing these goods. The populace of Oceania are kept in a perpetual state of poverty, yet they will get 'perks' as required to keep out dissension and unhappiness. 
 
Food is distributed at work areas only, and not homes. Homes are allowed to grow gardens only 10' x 10', but there are rules to how many items can be grown; all remainders must be provided to miniplenty, as it is called, within 24 hours, or they will forfeit the contents of their whole garden.

Everyone is allowed one apartment as a home, with children taken from the parents at birth, and educated by Oceania. There is no marriage system. Oceania's Ministry of Love tells you who can mate with who every three months. No emotional connections are allowed.
 


Ministry of Truth (minitru)

Oceania's propaganda ministry. It is responsible for any necessary falsification of historical events.
 
It basically is the willful fooling of posterity using "historical" archives to show "in fact" what "really" happened. Minitru, as it is newspeaked, also provides education for youth and adults using their screens.
 
Children 1 to 15 receive this 'education' for 12 hours a day, with skills training for four hours a day.
 
For adults (16 and older), they must watch screens each morning, then go to work, then watch in the evening. Watching is mandatory and monitored.
 


World's View of Oceania


The truth behind Oceania and 'Big Brother' is the ultra-secretive world dominating organization covertly known as Scorpius.  Scorpius aided in creating Oceania as a base of military power, and as such, a place where they can 'test' their policies, practices and manufacture and store  enough military power to take on most of the world's nations.
 
Oceania is a one-party system that to this day is a powerful and dangerous nation.  Several dozen North American, South American  and European superheroes have gone missing in attempts to help free the island inhabitants of this oppression. 
 
Spies and covert underground operatives have also gone missing within hours of their first reported actions. Very little information is ever discovered or seen about the internal operations of Oceania, other than the citizens there are 'staunch' believers in their world and happy, productive workers of Oceania. The rest of the world only receives information about Oceania from propaganda feeds from minitru. 
 
The United Nations has condemned Oceania for its human rights violations, its nuclear capacity, and its unwillingness to work with the world community towards peace, however, over the decades, the U.N. is now beginning to accept Oceania as a nation, and (scarily) as a world power.

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.
