The Osean-Belkan Alliance

Population2.699 billion

LeaderLarry Foulke


The United Entities of The Osean-Belkan Alliance is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Larry Foulke with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.699 billion Osean-Belkans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinsmark. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Osean-Belkan economy, worth 182 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 67,442 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Osean-Belkan Alliance's national animal is the Dove.

The Osean-Belkan Alliance is ranked 45,653rd in the world and 6th in The Great Chili for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 2,687.73 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
