Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Noble and Ancient Kingdom of Octinstine is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Pavo IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.918 billion Octinstineans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Octinstinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,564 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 157,694 Gold Dragons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 558,189 per year while the poor average 32,166, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Only the brainiest citizens become academics, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention, and the well-off can quite literally buy extra votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octinstine's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Penguin worship.

Octinstine is ranked 407th in The Western Isles and 111,497th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -12 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
