The Empire of Onderkelkia is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.684 billion Onderkelkians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inginas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Onderkelkian economy, worth a remarkable 4,379 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 247,645 Sovereigns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,781,446 per year while the poor average 11,088, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, tax rises are attributed to divine will, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Onderkelkia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is worshipping Zeus and Hades.

Onderkelkia is ranked 2nd in The Land of Kings and Emperors and 1,501st in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 8 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
