Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Otterner is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Joseph Sleek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.132 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 Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otternash. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Otternern economy, worth 491 trillion Otternern Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,712 Otternern Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, airport security is provided by private companies, immigrant Bigtopians work themselves to the bone to support gold-plated Otternern pensions, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Otterner's border. Crime 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.

Otterner is ranked 4,173rd in the world and 53rd in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,812.43 Tourists Per Hour.
