The Oceanic Republic of Octopus Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Kraken with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 4.74 billion Cephalopods enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octlantis. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cephalopodic economy, worth 558 trillion Tentacles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 117,819 Tentacles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. 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, and its national religion is The Holy Gospel of the Cuttlefish.

Octopus Islands is ranked 32,620th in the world and 113th in Forest for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.95 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
