The Disputed Territories of Obstinacy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 40.994 billion Obstinacyians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Obstinacyian economy, worth an astonishing 18,068 trillion pelves a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 440,757 pelves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Obstinacy's national animal is the dodo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Obstinacy is ranked 231,946th in the world and 50th in Wysteria for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 75.31 tourists per hour.
