The Emirate of Overbonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 33.485 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 are ignored. 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 10,675 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 318,813 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,112,797 per year while the poor average 66,441, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Overbopolis Times is sold out, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. 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.

Overbonia is ranked 1,637th in the world and 1st in North America for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 87.21 Workforce Participation Rate.
