Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.419 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 Welfare and Defense also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. The average income tax rate is 71.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 3,851 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 164,462 carbon credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Flogging is all the rage, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, concussed lambball players cannot remember their lineup position, and listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases. 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 1st in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 22nd in the world for Nicest Citizens, with 1,103 Smiles Per Hour (net).
