The Republic of Octone is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sadbh Daireann with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.138 billion Octoneans 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 medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aloson. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.7%.

The very strong Octonean economy, worth 184 trillion bahs a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 58,820 bahs, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Aloson, laws are littered with references to cheese, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Octone's national animal is the pengu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Celtic Mythology.

Octone is ranked 30,504th in the world and 77th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 33.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
