The Dictatorship of Overdosed crackheads is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Elrod the love god with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, ban on automobiles, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.229 billion Overdosed crackheadsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crack Central. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Overdosed crackheadsian economy, worth an astonishing 13,427 trillion rocks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 532,224 rocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Overdosed crackheads's national animal is the worm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Obey Elrod.

Overdosed crackheads is ranked 164th in the world and 3rd in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 13,427 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
