The United Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arthur Tannenbay with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 19.876 billion Odinburghians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth a remarkable 9,651 trillion Rawas a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 485,571 Rawas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, walls don't have ears, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, and a third of Odinburghians are e-certified CEOs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odinburgh's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Odin.

Odinburgh is ranked 236,263rd in the world and 58th in The Wolf Clan for Most Pacifist, with 2.99 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
