The Pondering Pirate of Overthinkers is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr George Auguste with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.189 billion Overthinkers 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.6%.

The Overthinking economy, worth 239 trillion monetary units a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 75,178 monetary units, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBO Governor goes house hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Overthinkers's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hyperanalysis.

Overthinkers is ranked 64,512th in the world and 2,464th in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 40.9 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
