The Technologist Enclave of Odrissia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Trevor Lazarus with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 9.246 billion Odrissians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion Central. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Odrissian economy, worth a remarkable 5,068 trillion Credits 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 a breathtaking 548,171 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Trespassers entering Governor Trevor Lazarus's office are immediately vaporized, teen boys and girls find stick-figure-aided lectures on their comradestruation emphasises socialist unity more than biology, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Odrissia's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mechanicum.

Odrissia is ranked 3,903rd in the world and 114th in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 161.4 Insults Per Minute.
