The Cephalopodic Republic of Octopus Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Kraken with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.426 billion Cephalopods 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cephalopodic economy, worth a remarkable 1,000 trillion tentacles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,765 tentacles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lending money has become a major liability, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, no one born in Octopus Islands can fix a leaky faucet, and the newest shade developed by Octopus Islands's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octopus Islands's national animal is the mimic octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Octopus Islands is ranked 10,699th in the world and 36th in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,332.01 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
