The Community of Overtonia is a massive, safe nation, notable for its fear of technology, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.081 billion Overtonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 36.8%.

The Overtonian economy, worth 63.3 trillion Beavers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,553 Beavers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and grim instructresses lead the unwillingly impregnated in chants of "it's all my fault" and "blessed be the fruit". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Overtonia's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Overtonia is ranked 256,009th in the world and 1st in Space Folding for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.21 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
