The United Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arthur Tannenbay with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 20.32 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth an astonishing 10,095 trillion Kroner 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 496,826 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, and criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison. 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 Church of Odin.

Odinburgh is ranked 242,844th in the world and 135th in The Wolf Clan for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.95 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
