The Republic of Otterner is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joseph Sleek with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.045 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 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Otternern economy, worth 533 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 88,231 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.
