The Republic of Otterner is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Joseph Sleek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.705 billion Otternerns love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otternash. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Otternern economy, worth 502 trillion Otternern Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,048 Otternern Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The police double as repo men, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the Otternern Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation. 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.
