The Imperium of Obliquity is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Callidus with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 34.456 billion Obliquitians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arecacea. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Obliquityian economy, worth a remarkable 2,773 trillion Lottery Tickets a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,498 Lottery Tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, there's never enough space in space, Callidus is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and rumor has it that Callidus has won three lotteries in a row. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Obliquity's national animal is the Politician, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Obliquity is ranked 14,396th in the world and 52nd in New Western Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 87.59 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
