Nitrogen forms different oxyanions than phosphorous or Arsenic, Oxygen does not form oxyanions, and although I have seen perfluorate, fluorate and fluorite salts on an exam and webpages where they form similar structures to chlorine, I believe the only one that really exists is hypofluorite (FlO-).
