The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by mr Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 22.178 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."

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 arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, the economy is undergoing a traumatic transition to capitalism, the state subsidizes liposuction, and speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging. 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 16th in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 112,477th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -1,108.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
