Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Onderkelkia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.977 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, with Social Policy and Environment not 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 4,925 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 246,581 Sovereigns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,617,283 per year while the poor average 14,721, a ratio of 109 to 1.

The national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and the world outside is only known of in folklore. 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 3rd in The Land of Kings and Emperors and 1,606th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
