The Automated Autocracy of Overthinkers is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr George Auguste with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.681 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, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Industry receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurum. The average income tax rate is 31.6%.

The Overthinking economy, worth 372 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 65,537 monetary units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 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 37,382nd in the world and 494th in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 372 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
