The Consortium of Allied Cephalopods is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Leadership Council with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 34.159 billion Allied Cephalopods enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allied Cephalopods City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Allied Cephalopodic economy, worth a remarkable 9,809 trillion Shells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,176 Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, most citizens in Allied Cephalopods are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Allied Cephalopods's national animal is the octopus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Allied Cephalopods is ranked 68,457th in the world and 1st in The Coral Reef for Most Politically Free, scoring 69.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
