The Constitutional Monarchy of Odysson is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Magistrate Selbrede with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.939 billion Odyssonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odyssia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Odyssonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,970 trillion Odysses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 198,267 Odysses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nations that kill an Odyssonian can expect a strongly worded letter, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, being Magistrate Selbrede has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 31,949th in the world and 14th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Populations, with 9.94 billion Capita.
