The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 6.652 billion, 6.647 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

The government has the power to seize property at will, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. 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 15th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 115,203rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -59 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Opodeldok is currently considering its options.
