OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Empire of Onder Kelkia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.236 billion Onder Kelkians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inginas. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Onder Kelkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,480 trillion Kroner a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,868 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, women complaining about lack of opportunity are told to "man up", the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP, and grim instructresses lead the unwillingly impregnated in chants of "it's all my fault" and "blessed be the fruit". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Onder Kelkia's national animal is the Mute Swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Onder Kelkia is ranked 250,898th in the world and 6,475th in Balder for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -22 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
