The Low-Key Den Mother of Octal is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Warden with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.041 billion Octans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Circuit City. The average income tax rate is 90.2%.
The very strong Oct economy, worth a remarkable 1,021 trillion Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 72,739 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, pet rocks are sold by the pound, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of The Warden's most personal functions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octal's national animal is the Silicite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Binarism.
