The Kingdom of Octoparnia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.895 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, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Octoparnian economy, worth 227 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 120,110 Ampersands, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, voting is compulsory, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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 14,795th in the world and 772nd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 115.96 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
