The Grand Imperium of Imperial-Octavia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Paramount with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.933 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 67.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Octavian economy, worth 466 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 159,007 Energy Coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, the word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Octavian Colonial Thesaurus, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 49,004th in the world and 9th in Cymopolia for Most Influential, scoring 487 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
