The Resistance of 11 Ohms is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.911 billion electrical engineers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Electricity. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The resistive economy, worth 129 trillion watts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 67,749 watts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, foreign lack of enthusiasm for resistive nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, and young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 11 Ohms's national animal is the resistor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

11 Ohms is ranked 28,091st in the world and 60th in Teal Nation for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,319.14 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
