The Asgardian Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Bruce Alistair with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.1 billion Odinburghians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth a remarkable 4,259 trillion Odurims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 249,092 Odurims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires, supervisors in Odinburgh commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odinburgh's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Divine Singularity.

Odinburgh is ranked 157,859th in the world and 62nd in Novus Lucidum for Most Devout, with 3.64 Prayers Per Hour.
