|Leader||Grand Duke Octavian XVII|
The Grand Duchy of Oktavio is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Octavian XVII with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.053 billion Oktavions are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oktavio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Oktavioan economy, worth 520 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 253,450 francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,367,406 per year while the poor average 24,378, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.
Charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, and amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oktavio's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
