The Kingdom of Octoparnia is a massive, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and digital currency. The hard-nosed population of 2.724 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 64.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Octoparnian economy, worth 337 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 123,881 Ampersands, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, criminals are thrown to the Platypuses to repay their debt to society, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 132,216th in the world and 4,793rd in Lazarus for Most Pacifist, with 32.91 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
