Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Noble Republic of Octinstine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.57 billion Octinstineans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asklan City. The average income tax rate is 79.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Octinstinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,985 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 171,596 Gold Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Atheists are heavily taxed, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Penguin worship.

Octinstine is ranked 108,015th in the world and 312th in The Western Isles for Most Authoritarian, with 0.09 Stalins.
