The Allied States of Okaydo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Hodd Toward with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.629 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 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Okaydoan economy, worth 528 trillion Okads a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,672 Okads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, the children of Okaydo are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 6,677th in the world and 331st in Lazarus for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,849.16 Tourists Per Hour.
