The Holy Black Dictatorship of O B E Y is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by fear with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.103 billion mindless slaves 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of capital punishment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient mindless slave labor economy, worth a remarkable 1,646 trillion tax dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 322,585 tax dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of capital punishment, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as mindless slaves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. O B E Y's national animal is the law, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Terryism.

O B E Y is ranked 214th in the world and 1st in TERRY for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 52,365.67 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
