The People's Republic of Obverahia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 425 million Obverahians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The very strong Obverahian economy, worth 26.2 trillion Basrahs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 61,637 Basrahs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 400,231 per year while the poor average 3,784, a ratio of 105 to 1.

Statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, the transit system is throwing poor people under the bus, election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, and internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Leader to cartoon bears. Crime is a problem. Obverahia's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Obverahia is ranked 45,319th in the world and 7th in Lily for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 8,767.96 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
