Location: The Free Nations Region

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Constitutional Monarchy of Odysson is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Magistrate Selbrede with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.746 billion Odyssonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odyssia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Odyssonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,909 trillion Odysses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 195,962 Odysses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, all recreational drugs are legal, and recognizing the Odyssonian flag qualifies you for citizenship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odysson's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Odysson is ranked 1,437th in the world and 1st in The Free Nations Region for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,806.13 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
