The Republic of Otterner is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Joseph Sleek with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.586 billion Otternerns enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Otternash. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Otternern economy, worth 597 trillion Otternern Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,659 Otternern Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The police double as repo men, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the Otternern Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Otterner's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
