Oh well we have problems

The Great Heaven Empire of Oh well we have problems is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Omnissiah with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.276 billion problems 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WhatCapitalCityIDon'tSeeACapitalCityHere. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient problematic economy, worth 786 trillion Stuffs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 183,927 Stuffs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, home education can sometimes be a load of bullocks, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oh well we have problems's national animal is the dead, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of the Machine.

Oh well we have problems is ranked 237,538th in the world and 7th in The Global Democratic Union for Best Weather, with -4 Meters Of Sunlight.
