Arx Obex

Population18 million


The Empire of Arx Obex is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18 million Arx Obexians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 37.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Arx Obexian economy, worth 980 billion solduses a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,493 solduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, neighboring nations are tired of Arx Obex's big fish stories, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and hell is not always other people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arx Obex's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arx Obex is ranked 153,695th in the world and 6,675th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 10 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
