The Stubborn Mule of Overthinkers is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr George Auguste with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.968 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, with Law & Order, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurum. The average income tax rate is 44.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Overthinking economy, worth 726 trillion monetary units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,226 monetary units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

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", internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 29,193rd in the world and 603rd in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,305.8 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
