Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Theocracy of Opodeldok is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Mitchell with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.493 billion Opodeldokians 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and International Aid are also considered important, while Healthcare and Education receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Opodeldok City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Opodeldokian economy, worth a remarkable 3,302 trillion carbon credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 115,907 carbon credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,599 per year while the poor average 31,203, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Anti-environmentalist protesters are gunned down without mercy, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Opodeldok' is a smash hit. 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. Opodeldok's national animal is the lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Opodeldok is ranked 20,395th in the world and 1st in ZZ 9 Plural Z Alpha for Most Authoritarian, with 1.32 Stalins.
