The Democratic States of Obsidian Snake is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 370 million Obsidians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silver City. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Obsidian Snakean economy, worth 24.5 trillion OH-shehrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 66,237 OH-shehrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime is totally unknown. Obsidian Snake's national animal is the White lipped python, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Obsidian Snake is ranked 151,423rd in the world and 167th in Refugia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 97,579 Standard Monetary Units.
