Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.56 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, although Welfare and Defense are also considered important, while Healthcare and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 3,897 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 165,437 carbon credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Opodeldok is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha, and military spending recently hit a new high. 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 9th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 139,386th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with -17 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
