The Galactic Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arthur Tannenbay with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 18.837 billion Odinburghians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth a remarkable 8,051 trillion Rawas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 amazing 427,426 Rawas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, foreign governments regularly accuse the Odinburghian military of war crimes, only adults may purchase violent video games, and the dead fish in the national rivers aren't decomposing because even bacteria can't survive the levels of toxicity. 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 Order of Odin.

Odinburgh is ranked 170,155th in the world and 34th in Novus Lucidum for Most Pro-Market, scoring -64.56 on the Rand Index.
