The Gigantic Military Complex of Overlord66 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.552 billion Overlordians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Industry, and International Aid also on the agenda, while Welfare is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.7%.

The strong Overlord66ian economy, worth 197 trillion Life Essences a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 43,396 Life Essences, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 125,680 per year while the poor average 11,874, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Elections have been outlawed, there are no minimum wage laws, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Overlord66's national animal is the Armadillo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Overlord66 is ranked 78,780th in the world and 1st in Overlordian Puppetry for Most Developed, scoring 53.19 on the Human Development Index.
