The Kingdom of Octoparnia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.27 billion Octoparnians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Octoparnian economy, worth 441 trillion Ampersands a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 134,878 Ampersands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, military spending recently hit a new high, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octoparnia's national animal is the Platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Octoparnia is ranked 151,864th in the world and 69th in Westphalia for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 24.16 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
