Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Onderkelkia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.077 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 4,438 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 245,505 Sovereigns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,710,867 per year while the poor average 12,214, a ratio of 140 to 1.

Charity no longer begins at home, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Inginas. 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 145th in The Land of Kings and Emperors and 34,232nd in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 10.92 Net Tourists per hour.
