The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Keith Mitchell with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism. Its compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 21.356 billion 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.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, military spending recently hit a new high, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and the education system is famed for its taxing exams. 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 4th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 2,852nd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 37 Whatever.
