The Noble Republic of Octinstine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Tyler XXIV with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.838 billion Octinstineans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asklan City. The average income tax rate is 83.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Octinstinean economy, worth a remarkable 2,420 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 174,880 Gold Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, cute fluffy little King Tyler XXIVS are increasingly popular exotic pets, Octinstineans are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octinstine's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Penguin worship.

Octinstine is ranked 69,388th in the world and 425th in Europeia for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,548.82 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
