The Holy Purple Malice of The Overseer is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Overseer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 24.879 billion Acolyteses are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadows. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Overseerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,311 trillion nulls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,700 nulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, heroes long thought dead are promptly killed upon their return, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Overseer's national animal is the void, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Malice.

The Overseer is ranked 187,208th in the world and 153rd in The Brotherhood of Malice for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.86 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
