    .. it's from George Orwell's "1984".

    "Basically, the world is divided into three warring powers, Oceana (i.e. the Americas, Australasia, South Africa and Britain), Eurasia (Continental Europe and Russia), Eastasia (China and Southeast Asia).

    "Airstrip One" is the name for Britain in "1984", effectively subservient to Oceana (i.e. the US) and used as a base for Oceana's influence."

    That's what Dynamoo said
