The Automated Snark Service of Overthinkers is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dr George Auguste with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.162 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, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Industry is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurum. The average income tax rate is 30.6%.

The Overthinking economy, worth 342 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 66,350 monetary units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 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 111,684th in the world and 4,441st in the West Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 66.43 Workforce Participation Rate.
