The Rogue Nation of Imperial-Octavia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 398 million Octavians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octodurus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The strong Octavian economy, worth 26.4 trillion Maeks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 66,385 Maeks, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Imperial-Octavia's national animal is the Kraken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Imperial-Octavia is ranked 50,362nd in the world and 154th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 72.81 Workforce Participation Rate.
