The Allied States of Okaydo is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hodd Toward with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.172 billion Okaydoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okaydo City. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Okaydoan economy, worth 428 trillion Okads a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,156 Okads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Okaydo's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Okaydoism.

Okaydo is ranked 134,040th in the world and 4,884th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 14.18 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
