Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Onderkelkia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.04 billion Onderkelkians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inginas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Onderkelkian economy, worth a remarkable 6,989 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 317,146 Sovereigns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,844,963 per year while the poor average 25,771, a ratio of 71.6 to 1.

The colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, and church and state are inseparable in their influence on education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Onderkelkia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping Zeus and Hades.

Onderkelkia is ranked 155,867th in the world and 424th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Average, scoring 12.9 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
