The Noble and Ancient Kingdom of Octinstine is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.895 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 86%, 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.

Much of Octinstine's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. 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 47th in Albion and 16,603rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
