The Republic of Otterner is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Joseph Sleek with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.334 billion Otternerns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
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 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Otternern economy, worth 449 trillion Otternern Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,250 Otternern Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. 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.
