|Leader||Prince Vasiel I|
The Principate of Ottomeme is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Vasiel I with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The devout population of 1.246 billion Ottomemeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonkopolis. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ottomemean economy, worth 148 trillion Memes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 119,128 Memes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The clergy of Orthodox remains a single-sex institution, political detractors refer to Prince Vasiel I as 'that Bigtopian puppet', the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ottomeme's national animal is the Big Chungus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox.
