The Fabulous War Horse of Overthinkers is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Dr George Auguste with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.506 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 medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurum. The average income tax rate is 34.7%.

The Overthinking economy, worth 592 trillion monetary units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,629 monetary units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

School football matches are usually five-a-side, most ambassadors from Overthinkers retire only a few years after being appointed, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. 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 89,541st in the world and 2,555th in the West Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 34.74 Effective Tax Rate.
