South Odinburgh

Population3.85 billion

LeaderPresident Jasmine Rosenblad


The Unitary Republic of South Odinburgh is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Jasmine Rosenblad with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.85 billion South Odinburghians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterfell. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient South Odinburghian economy, worth 712 trillion Odurus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 185,080 Odurus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, and you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Odinburgh's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Norse.

South Odinburgh is ranked 8,500th in the world and 10th in Novus Lucidum for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 6,161.73 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
