Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.725 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 Defense, Welfare, and Industry 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 79.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 4,547 trillion carbon credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. 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 170,166 carbon credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 564,501 per year while the poor average 38,285, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, dining out often involves lambs on the plate no matter what you order, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and the government has the power to seize property at will. 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 185,630th in the world and 8th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -82.39 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
