Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, strictly enforced bedtime, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.515 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 dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Defense, Welfare, and Industry 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 4,459 trillion carbon credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. 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 168,173 carbon credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 607,058 per year while the poor average 33,281, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Nudity is frowned upon, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, politicians debate whether caffeine is too addictive for the public, and most academic research has ground to a halt. 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 53,030th in the world and 4th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha for Highest Poor Incomes, with 33,281.47 Standard Monetary Units.
