Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.032 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, with Welfare and Defense also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 3,932 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 163,650 carbon credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, all transmission towers have been temporarily diverted in order to establish dialogue with a comet, the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, and newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent. 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 19th in the world for Best Weather, with 1,909 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
