The Grand Imperium of Imperial-Octavia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Paramount with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.024 billion Octavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octavious. The average income tax rate is 75.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Octavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,195 trillion Energy Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 170,207 Energy Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Air Imperial-Octavia is rumored to receive more government funding than the Octavian Air Force, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial-Octavia's national animal is the Organic, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Paramount Worship.

Imperial-Octavia is ranked 22,224th in the world and 2nd in Atkemri Puppet storage for Smartest Citizens, with 58.65 quips per hour.
