The Blue of Imperial Dodo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Ododo VII with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and state-planned economy. The democratic population of 1.352 billion Dodoans 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 government prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunalam. The average income tax rate is 39.0%.

The very strong Dodoan economy, worth 87.0 trillion Santas 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 black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. 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 64,337 Santas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, the nation's war memorials are being torn down and replaced with peace gardens, and pretty hair and tight shorts are considered to be essentials for successful political lobbyists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Dodo's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is hyacult.

Imperial Dodo is ranked 44,416th in the world and 1,445th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,092.61 Tourists Per Hour.
