Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Noble Republic of Octinstine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.204 billion Octinstineans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken 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 81.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Octinstinean economy, worth a remarkable 2,179 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,560 Gold Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, citizens are abandoning their homes en masse in a widespread panic over asbestos, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. 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 135,651st in the world and 349th in The Western Isles for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 37.9 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
