The United Federation of Odinburgh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arthur Tannenbay with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 20.501 billion Odinburghians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorheim. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Odinburghian economy, worth an astonishing 10,246 trillion Kroner a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 499,824 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Odinburghian democracy, the nation has declared war on all passing comets, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Odinburgh's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Odin.

Odinburgh is ranked 4,754th in the world and 2nd in The Wolf Clan for Fattest Citizens, with 24.36 Obesity Rate.
