The Corporate Divisions of Obvious Extra Vote is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by McMoneyBags with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.599 billion Obvious Extras are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Obliviona. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Obvious Extra Folk economy, worth a remarkable 3,636 trillion Extra Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 378,845 Extra Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,785,141 per year while the poor average 15,706, a ratio of 177 to 1.

The people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Obliviona, it's customary to greet the monarch with fist bumps, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Obvious Extra Vote's national animal is the Mutant Death Cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Bank.

Obvious Extra Vote is ranked 33,799th in the world and 2nd in Quiet Corner of the World for Most Pro-Market, scoring 69.11 on the Rand Index.
