The Empire of Obelias is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Anastacius de Alger with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, flagrant waste-dumping, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.267 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 dominated by the Department of Industry, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazzell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Obeliasian economy, worth 187 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 147,847 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 520,579 per year while the poor average 30,403, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

The statue in the Yossef Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, students in Obelias's schools rarely attend their classes, children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. 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 227,333rd in the world and 9,274th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 11.62 Tourists Per Hour.
