The Overwatch's Enhanced Bastion of Voorzichtigheid is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jamie Izabella Astrid Clara Ruby V Marie with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.021 billion Titans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watchpoint Gibraltar of the Ex-Overwatch. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Voorzichtigheidian economy, worth a remarkable 1,402 trillion Universal and Reliable Valentian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 279,378 Universal and Reliable Valentian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voorzichtigheid's national animal is the Very Big Katten en Kittens van de Wereld, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism amongst Many Other Religions.

Voorzichtigheid is ranked 15,968th in the world and 3rd in Singapore Island for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,218.04 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
