The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by mr Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 22.494 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Healthcare and Education receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, Opodeldok is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Opodeldok's national animal is the lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the carbon credit.

Opodeldok is ranked 1st in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 20th in the world for Best Weather, with 2,918 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
