Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, fear of technology, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.371 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 Welfare and Defense are also considered important, while Healthcare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 4,026 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 165,223 carbon credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. 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 2nd in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 6,011th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
