The United Empire of Otterner is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Joseph Sleek with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.642 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otternash. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.
Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Otterner's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Otternern Pound.
