The Republic of Free Obelaviddion
“Strength Through Compliance”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Location: Mixed Up
Regional Influence: Handshaker
The Republic of Free Obelaviddion is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 167 million Free Obelaviddionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.3%.
The strong Free Obelaviddionian economy, worth 11.0 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 65,896 francs, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.
Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Obelaviddion's national animal is the unicorn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
