The Kingdom of Wodan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by HM Wodan II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.072 billion Wodalonian love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlas. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wodalan economy, worth 666 trillion ฿itllets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,810 ฿itllets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, Wodalan watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wodan's national animal is the Aguila, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Wodan is ranked 199,170th in the world and 9,524th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
