Orwell's 1984 by DaneOfScandinavy Orwell's 1984 by DaneOfScandinavy
In the year 1984, much of the world is divided amongst the three authoritarian superstates of Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia. They are in a continuous state of war and fight for control of the rest of the world, which consists mostly of highly disorganized, anarchistic communities and nations.

United Oceanian States/UOS
- Capital: New York City
- Ideology: Ingsoc (English Socialism), Oligarchical Collectivism, Western imperialism 

Eurasian Union/EU
- Capital: Moscow
- Ideology: Neo-Bolshevism, National Communism, Eurasianism

People's Federation of Eastasia/PFE
- Capital: Shanghai
- Ideology: Death Worship (Obliteration of the Self), Communism

I thought the superstates had no capitals, and the provincial Inner Parties (or equivalents in Eurasia and East-Asia) ran the show, reporting to some semi-mythical "Big Brother" figure.

Well, you may be right, but it seems strange to have a country without a capital. I mean, there must be some city which is the main seat of the Inner Party and its equivalents.

The way I interpreted the situation in the book was that there was no single seat of government but that the Inner Parties ran the show from  the major cities, without one national capital. So the North American Party has its main headquarters in New York (or Washington or Chicago or Mexico City or Toronto or...), Airstrip One's is in London, etc.*

I'm basing this theory on what it says in Goldstein's book: none of the superstates has imperialistic behavior; they may rape and plunder those areas that are in dispute, but in the core territories there's no feeling that the populace is under the thumb of a distant colonial overlord. I interpreted this as meaning that the government is almost totally decentralized, with no central capital cities and little to no communication among the local Inner Parties.

*And smaller regional/local Parties handling what the "national" Party can't deal with, obviously. This is likely more developed in the Americas and Africa than the Atlantic islands (Airstrip One, Iceland, etc.) because of the greater distances and troubles involved in keeping order on continents and fractions thereof than islands.

All of this goes for Eurasia and East-Asia, too. I'm only ignoring them because Orwell concentrates solely on Oceania and Airstrip One especially, so one has a much better idea of how the Oceanian government works. The other two are likely to be pretty well the same, besides a few regional differences.

Philippines a disputed territory? *is offended

I know that my country is already independent since 1945/1946 ((a.k.a. shortly after the WW2)) and HAS its own government since 1934 when the US decided to give Philippines 'Commonwealth'. 

Malaysia is already formed by 1960s. Thailand and Indonesia`s already has their own government by then.
