The Tyrannical Dictatorship of Overthrough Empire is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.567 billion Overtroops are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Parisz. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Overthrougian economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Ouroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 205,221 Ouroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Overthrough Empire's national animal is the Mutated Abomination, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is OLordism.

Overthrough Empire is ranked 4,364th in the world and 1st in Torn Earth for Most Avoided, scoring 530.39 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
