The Republic of Odarius is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 298 million Odarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Odariusian economy, worth 8.03 trillion Daris a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 26,961 Daris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, concussed Unknownball players cannot remember their lineup position, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odarius's national animal is the Unknown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Odarius is ranked 111,153rd in the world and 5,487th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -90 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
