Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Noble and Ancient Kingdom of Octinstine is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.648 billion Octinstineans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asklan City. The average income tax rate is 71.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Octinstinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,079 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 124,878 Gold Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, the nation's gold reserves are said to be somewhere over the rainbow (Octinstine has found 1 easter egg), construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the only places to see Dragons now are at local zoos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octinstine's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Penguin worship.

Octinstine is ranked 663rd in The Land of Kings and Emperors and 122,941st in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -23 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
