The Technologist Enclave of Odrissia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Governor Trevor Lazarus with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.031 billion Odrissians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. 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 2,572 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 365,828 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, business leaders are mailing Governor Trevor Lazarus forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, and the military has adopted a weird double-fisted salute. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mechanicum.

Odrissia is ranked 140,308th in the world and 4,674th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Drug Use, scoring 15.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
