The Empire of Obelias is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Anastacius de Alger with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.207 billion Obeliaians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazzell. The average income tax rate is 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Obeliasian economy, worth 430 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 194,990 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Emperor Anastacius de Alger's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Kazzell generates millions of views, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, euthanasia is legal, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Obelias's national animal is the Daflamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Obelias is ranked 216,746th in the world and 7,946th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -347.63 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
