The Democratic SOC Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arthur Tannenbay with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 19.129 billion Odinburghians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth a remarkable 8,466 trillion Rawas a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 442,609 Rawas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and exiled racists are enjoying their retirement in exotic lands. 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 The Order of Odin.

Odinburgh is ranked 6,945th in the world and 6th in Novus Lucidum for Most Influential, scoring 8,421 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
