The United Kingdom of Odin-land is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Count Nicholas Stonkton with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 4.679 billion Odin-landians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valhalla. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Odin-landian economy, worth 791 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 169,180 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odin-land's national animal is the Polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Norse Mythology.

Odin-land is ranked 118,886th in the world and 1st in Ravensthorp for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,034.29 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
