Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Onderkelkia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.162 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 primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 7,412 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 320,014 Sovereigns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,883,486 per year while the poor average 25,296, a ratio of 74.5 to 1.

The government is lending a hand to private industry, citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Golden Eagle hunting institutions, and women are ordered home to reproduce for the glory of the Empire. 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 118,748th in the world and 226th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.22 Crimes Per Hour.
