The Holy Kingdom of Odin-land is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr Stonk with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed population of 2.223 billion Odin-landians 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 Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valhalla. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Odin-landian economy, worth 364 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 164,071 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, billions of Golds are spent to take high-quality photos of the Polar Bear Nebula, and radio stations offer prizes to callers who can guess this month's most endangered species. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odin-land's national animal is the Polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mythology.

Odin-land is ranked 204,872nd in the world and 137th in The Wolf Clan for Fattest Citizens, with 7.48 Obesity Rate.
