Octoparnia

The Kingdom of Octoparnia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its state-planned economy, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.364 billion Octoparnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Octoparnian economy, worth 288 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, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 121,879 Ampersands, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Octoparnia, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". 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 103,366th in the world and 3,330th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 47.28 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
