Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Onderkelkia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.444 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 5,739 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 280,733 Sovereigns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,823,405 per year while the poor average 17,225, a ratio of 105 to 1.

The nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in The Land of Kings and Emperors, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, the government snoops on private internet connections, and many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping Zeus and Hades.

Onderkelkia is ranked 192,647th in the world and 441st in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Best Weather, with -777 Meters Of Sunlight.
