The Noble and Ancient Kingdom of Octinstine is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.983 billion, 1.977 billion of whom are zombies, 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asklan City. The average income tax rate is 84%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

Online tourism reviews of Octinstine are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, homes have been banned from having any more than one wheel, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octinstine's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Penguin worship, and its currency is the quango.

Octinstine is ranked 14th in Rushmore and 14,569th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Octinstine is currently attempting to exterminate its infected with military force.
