The Dictatorship of Overdosed crackheads is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Elrod the love god with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.776 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, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. 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 14,143 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 548,723 rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents ask their ten-year-olds for help with their government-mandated book reports, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one. 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 168,441st in the world and 6,762nd in the Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -379.26 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
