The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by mr Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 22.28 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.

Businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist', the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, the populace lives in fear of painful execution for minor offences, and absentminded citizens frequently converse with hallucinations. 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 607th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 26 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
