The Kingdom of Codd is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The King with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, triple-decker prams, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.146 billion Coddians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Codd City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.3%.

The all-consuming Coddian economy, worth 723 trillion Codds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 101,313 Codds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 481,841 per year while the poor average 12,545, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Codd's national animal is the Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Codd is ranked 129,261st in the world and 11th in The Reunited Resistance Against Liberals for Most Stationary, with 41.8716051466 Days.
