The Obseen Gestures of Unseen is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and public floggings. The cynical population of 6.377 billion Unseenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 32.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Unseenian economy, worth 374 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,736 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, and adulthood begins with the creation of an email account. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unseen's national animal is the falcon.
