Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.336 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, although Defense and Welfare are also considered important, while Healthcare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 4,287 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 169,232 carbon credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 483,830 per year while the poor average 47,149, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, police and sick people alike fear the Day of Rest as all institutions are forced to shut down, and corporations are either above the law or corrupting it. 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 17th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring 375 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
