The United Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arthur Tannenbay with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 20.054 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, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth a remarkable 9,800 trillion Kroner 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 488,707 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, a stitch in time could see you serving nine, and 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists. 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 122nd in the world and 1st in The Wolf Clan for Largest Black Market, with 13,477 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
