The Empire of Arx Obex is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Skimark with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.265 billion 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arxia. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Arx Obexian economy, worth 186 trillion Solduses a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,181 Solduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
A TV celebrity dominates the nation's newest democratic political party, it's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast, minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, and behind every local dictator is an Arx Obexian advisor whispering in their ear. 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, and its national religion is Arxianesim.
