The Kingdom of Overdrivia is a massive, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.617 billion Kalamarese 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squidopolis. The average income tax rate is 21.4%.

The strong Overdrivian economy, worth 96.2 trillion Drivends a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is 59,467 Drivends, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Overdrivia's national animal is the Squid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Overdrivia is ranked 163,057th in the world and 7,587th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 10.36 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
