The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by mr Mitchell with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, cynical population of 21.943 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 country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 1st in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha and 263rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 73 on the Enoch Index.
