The Empire of Obelias is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Anastacius de Alger with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.774 billion Obeliaians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazzell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Obeliasian economy, worth 319 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 180,121 Euros, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 689,891 per year while the poor average 32,459, a ratio of 21.3 to 1.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, all footpaths have tollbooths, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Obelias's national animal is the Daflamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Obelias is ranked 12,068th in the world and 458th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 8,538.45 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
