The Great Heaven Empire of Oh well we have problems is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Omnissiah with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.492 billion problems 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 prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WhatCapitalCityIDon'tSeeACapitalCityHere. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient problematic economy, worth 847 trillion Stuffs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,597 Stuffs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Girls in elementary school classes gaze longingly at boys playing tag, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and people say chess victor The Omnissiah can kill you with mind-bullets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oh well we have problems's national animal is the dead, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of the Machine.

Oh well we have problems is ranked 19,590th in the world and 5th in The Global Democratic Union for Largest Governments, scoring 26.53 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
