The United Kingdom of The Odyssyian Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Sturm the Unbearing with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.329 billion Odyssyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panau. The average income tax rate is 78.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Odyssyian Islandsian economy, worth 130 trillion Plutoniums 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 98,389 Plutoniums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are taught to throw their guns at their enemies once the bullets have run out, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, and the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Odyssyian Islands's national animal is the Parched Wendigo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is DonLoganism.

The Odyssyian Islands is ranked 153,725th in the world and 1,094th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 827.39 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
