The Holy Queendom of Oktotheio is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Our Lady Sulfur Sapphira Frasch with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 5.541 billion Oktotheioans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapphire City. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oktotheioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,471 trillion Gold Hearts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 265,481 Gold Hearts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Our Lady Sulfur Sapphira Frasch, and national stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oktotheio's national animal is the Collared Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Oktotheism.

Oktotheio is ranked 1,456th in the world and 2nd in Elemental Nations for Most Cultured, scoring 263 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
