Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Odysson is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Magistrate Prime with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.167 billion Odyssonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odyssia. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Odyssonian economy, worth 582 trillion Odysses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 139,870 Odysses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odysson's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Odysson is ranked 49,997th in the world and 67th in Wintreath for Most Authoritarian, with 0.4 Stalins.
