Obesity is not an issue in Brellach. Their religious beliefs require them to take care of their bodies, being as they are the creations of their Goddess, just as much as they must take care of the land. The result is a culture that shuns greed and gluttony in general, encourages active lifestyles, and one which - in the warmer climates at least - prefers a diet of small meat portions and large vegetable portions. An obese individual would find disapproval in Brellach; such reckless disregard for one's health is insulting to the Brellachi.

Obesity here is 0% due to boquenses' healthy nourishment. By the other hand, students in elementary and high school has a compulsory 6 hours week of PE lessons.

Varies among different social classes. The rich and middle class people are more or less slim thanks to having enough funds to be able to afford higher quality food. Unfortunately, our working class citizens are prone to falling victim to obesity due to their consumption of cheap foodstufs filled with hazardous additives and fats.

Those numbers mean that your country has a fairly high obesity rate. A stark contrast to Daphomir, where the people are very healthy, and have a very low obesity rate: top 84% in the world.

It's certainly a thing in urban areas, but on the whole it isn't so common that it's a genuine concern. Between the constitutional right to the ability to live off the land (to the point that apartment blocks have to come with allotments, and all back gardens are required to be built with or retrofitted with greenhouses), supermarkets selling mainly ingredients rather than ready-made meals and snacks, and the heavy stigma around car dependency means that the diet is good and people are willing to at least walk or cycle to a bus/train/tram stop if need be. Oh and we are quite a hilly country. That'll burn a lot of calories.

Obesity is not unheard of in Lothria, especially among certain sects of the nobility, but for the most part, it is not especially common. Most of the peasantry is lucky to get enough food to survive off of.

Obesity is not a major concern thanks to a balanced Mediterranean diet here. However, it is not uncommon in older generations, likely a factor of age and "enjoying the good life"

Tangatarehua has low to average levels of obesity, probably comparable to most European nations. There are certainly obese people in Tangatarehua, but they are the exception not the norm and it's not considered widespread or an epidemic.

The most likely reason for the relatively low levels of obesity is that fast food is not widely available in Tangatarehua due to very strict anti-trust regulations that make it difficult to set up a chain of restaurant franchises - for example, there are only five McDonald's restaurants in the entire country.

However, obesity is slowly rising among the younger generation due to increasingly sedentary lifestyles and the westernisation of the nation in modern times.

Obesity in Subhurbia is low thanks to diet as well as the walkability of most cities. There are popular gaming systems that involve motion sensors, making the player do physical motions, including but not limited to running which contributes to low obesity rates among youth.
Not to be mistaken for Suburbia.

Obesity is uncommon in SimTropican roughly around 3-4% for Obesity and 8-12% for being overweight. This is due to both a healthy and active culture and the diet. Being healthy and active is a big part of the culture, with a lot of outdoor activity being common. Being healthy and thus slim is the norm while obesity is seen as an illness to overcome. Generally obese people are treated with mercy but there are those who look down on Obese as lacking self control. Since outdoor activity is common in the culture there are numerous parks, and forests. The Royal Family owns a good number of them, freely opening them to the public and hosting many regular events.


Because of the culture the adverage diet is pretty healthy with the most common foods being red meats, fish, grains and green veggies. Most of the produce is locally grown and is organic and having home gardens is fairly common. While Fast food is present in SimTropican, generally it's overlooked to healthier options, many fast food changes to gain buisnesses changed their menus to healthier options because of this.
