|Leader||Emperor Anastacius de Alger|
The Empire of Obelias is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Anastacius de Alger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.925 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazzell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Obeliasian economy, worth 362 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 188,458 Euros, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,036,832 per year while the poor average 17,376, a ratio of 59.7 to 1.
The weather in Kazzell is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". 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.
