The Republic of Otterner is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Joseph Sleek with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The democratic, humorless population of 5.012 billion Otternerns enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otternash. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Otternern economy, worth 488 trillion Otternern Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 97,393 Otternern Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and many aides in Joseph Sleek's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. 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 sparkling oceans.
