The Federal Republic of Octinstine is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Great killer Penguin in the sky with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.154 billion Octinstineans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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 79%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

Citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, main battle tanks stalk the woods of Octinstine in search of Panthers, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 11th in Wintreath and 7,066th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 315 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
