The Dictatorship of Overdosed crackheads is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Elrod the love god with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, rampant corporate plagiarism, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.137 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, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. 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 14,980 trillion rocks 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 a breathtaking 552,031 rocks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,868,344 per year while the poor average 120,537, a ratio of 15.5 to 1.

The nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, and nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience. 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 209,789th in the world and 7,642nd in the Pacific for Safest, scoring 1.68 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
