The Gigantic Military Complex of Overlord68 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Supreme All Knowing Overlord with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, cynical population of 5.354 billion Overlordians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Administration and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark Tower. The average income tax rate is 38.2%.

The Overlordian economy, worth 155 trillion Life Essences 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 a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 29,059 Life Essences, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of The Dark Tower, The Supreme All Knowing Overlord has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, and Armadilloism has been named as Overlord68's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Overlord68's national animal is the Armadillo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Armadilloism.

Overlord68 is ranked 94,877th in the world and 1st in Union of the Seekers for Most Cultured, scoring 64 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
