Onder Kelkia

AnimalMute Swan

The Empire of Onder Kelkia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Hair Broom with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.885 billion Onder Kelkians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inginas. The average income tax rate is 68.2%.

The powerhouse Onder Kelkian economy, worth 667 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 75,117 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Onder Kelkia's national animal is the Mute Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Onder Kelkia is ranked 27,718th in the world and 1,552nd in Balder for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86.21 Years.
