Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.139 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 and Welfare 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 81.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 4,649 trillion carbon credits a year, is driven almost 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 171,314 carbon credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 637,900 per year while the poor average 32,293, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

President Mitchell often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Opodeldokian Space Agency, prevalence rates of genitourinary infectious disease are inexplicably on the rise, and burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime. 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 178,425th in the world and 8th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha for Most Armed, with 0.04 Weapons Per Person.
