The Empire of Overlia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by All Seeing Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.112 billion Overlians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Saint John. The average income tax rate is 55.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Overlian economy, worth 129 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,474 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Overlia Blood Tithe, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, edutainment video games are taking Overlia's students to the next level, and according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Overlia's national animal is the Arctic Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Overlia is ranked 144,614th in the world and 5,521st in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.61 Obesity Rate.
