The Empire of Onderkelkia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Hamilton with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.578 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inginas. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling industries.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, organ donation is compulsory, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Onderkelkia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is worshipping Zeus and Hades, and its currency is the Sovereign.

Onderkelkia is ranked 298th in The Land of Kings and Emperors and 107,324th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -177 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
