The Allied States of Okaydo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hodd Toward with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 1.38 billion Okaydoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okaydo City. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Okaydoan economy, worth 154 trillion Okads a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,010 Okads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Behind every local dictator is an Okaydoan advisor whispering in their ear, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 20,034th in the world and 269th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 75.22 on the Human Development Index.
