The Holy Black Dictatorship of O B E Y is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by fear with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.694 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 1,019 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 275,953 tax dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared victoria over the cheese menace, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, and politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes. 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 751st in the world and 1st in TERRY for Highest Poor Incomes, with 227,215.64 Standard Monetary Units.
