The Federation of Cefalopotxi is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Cefalos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.099 billion Cefalopotxians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tintoria. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cefalopotxian economy, worth 252 trillion Gold Stars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 120,125 Gold Stars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime is totally unknown. Cefalopotxi's national animal is the Giant Pacific Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cefalopotxi is ranked 136,565th in the world and 102nd in The Western Isles for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 162.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
