The Booty Magnet of Pholidoteuthis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.296 billion Pholidoteuthisians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 26%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the government is avowedly atheist, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Pholidoteuthis's national animal is the booty cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the booty booty.

Pholidoteuthis is ranked 1st in World Pirates Alliance and 70,692nd in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 11 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
