The Holy Empire of Okramija is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by God emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 897 million Okramijans 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okramopolis. The average income tax rate is 34.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Okramijan economy, worth 117 trillion talirs 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. 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 131,130 talirs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.
The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", and God emperor has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Okramija's national animal is the bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
