The Emirate of Overbonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.63 billion Overbonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Overbopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Overbonian economy, worth an astonishing 11,550 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 324,184 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,089,847 per year while the poor average 71,503, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Chocolate in Overbonia has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and the government seizes the property of the recently deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Overbonia's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Boism.

Overbonia is ranked 208,028th in the world and 59th in North America for Lowest Crime Rates, with 3.48 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
