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 triple-decker prams, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.89 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 1,507 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 308,191 tax dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

O B E Y is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, and the nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books. 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 196,842nd in the world and 5th in TERRY for Safest, scoring 10.36 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
