The Emirate of Overbonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 40.224 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, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 13,275 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 330,036 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 934,249 per year while the poor average 93,227, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Train stations can be 'armful places, double-parking is on the rise as automobile numbers increase, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism. 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 2,865th in the world and 2nd in North America for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 12,815.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
