The Empire of Obelias
“Praise the lord!!”
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Empire of Obelias is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Anastacius de Alger with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.956 billion Obeliaians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazzell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Obeliasian economy, worth 371 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 189,805 Euros, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,047,690 per year while the poor average 17,375, a ratio of 60.3 to 1.
The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, Obeliasian TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and baiting is a national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Obelias's national animal is the Daflamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.
