The Noble and Ancient Kingdom of Octinstine is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.33 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 82%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

Pro-democracy regime change has been avoided, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and Asklan City is a police state during international summits. 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 7th in Atlantian Oceania and 7,578th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 153 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
