The Federal Republic of Odwyerica is a massive, genial nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.482 billion Odwyericans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portumna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Odwyerican economy, worth 574 trillion florins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 128,190 florins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 622,949 per year while the poor average 15,235, a ratio of 40.9 to 1.

Party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, decongestants have replaced florins in street transactions, and parents are really careful to pick the right gun for their kids' birthdays. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Odwyerica's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State atheism.

Odwyerica is ranked 102,311th in the world and 500th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,661.99 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
