Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Constitutional Monarchy of Odysson is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Magistrate Prime with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.557 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odyssia. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Odyssonian economy, worth 645 trillion Odysses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 141,562 Odysses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grand Magistrate Prime can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. 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 167,012th in the world and 200th in Wintreath for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -26.2 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
