The Empire of Obelias is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Anastacius de Alger with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.806 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, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kazzell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Obeliasian economy, worth 332 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 183,992 Euros, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 991,072 per year while the poor average 17,758, a ratio of 55.8 to 1.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and international trade is a sticky issue. 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 14,423rd in the world and 712th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,163.95 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
