The Asgardian Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Bruce Alistair with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.095 billion Odinburghians 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 Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth a remarkable 4,246 trillion Odurims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 248,380 Odurims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

President Bruce Alistair often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, most pop videos prominently feature the Odinburghian flag, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. 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 Church of the Divine Singularity.

Odinburgh is ranked 756th in the world and 4th in Novus Lucidum for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 965.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
