The Galactic Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Thekla Marx with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 15.824 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth a remarkable 3,659 trillion Odurus a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,262 Odurus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolkids are often mistaken for fast food workers, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, and therapists can always squeeze in another house-call. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odinburgh's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Norse.

Odinburgh is ranked 7,723rd in the world and 5th in Novus Lucidum for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 6,645.87 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
