OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Noble and Ancient Kingdom of Octinstine is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.738 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.

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 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 317th in Albion and 84,148th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
