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 anti-smoking policies, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.52 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, 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 7,018 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, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 326,127 Sovereigns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,160,193 per year while the poor average 18,929, a ratio of 114 to 1.

Foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Onderkelkian bee, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, most academic research has ground to a halt, and freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink. 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 Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping Zeus and Hades.

Onderkelkia is ranked 1,256th in the world and 3rd in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 86.86 Workforce Participation Rate.
