The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 23.058 billion Opodeldokians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, although Welfare and Defense are also considered important, while Healthcare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 3,809 trillion carbon credits a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 165,223 carbon credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes the property of the recently deceased, corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public suffers from the loss of government aid money, stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet, and society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Opodeldok's national animal is the lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Opodeldok is ranked 1st in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 151st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,666.65 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
