LeaderValaris VI


The Theocracy of Octovalis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Valaris VI with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.664 billion Octovalisians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octavista. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Octovalisian economy, worth 529 trillion Schwings a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,569 Schwings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octovalis's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Octovalis is ranked 150,132nd in the world and 8,363rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 46.62 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
