The Dominion of Squidroidia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Higa Takanori with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, fear of technology, and daily referendums. The compassionate, devout population of 4.25 billion Squidroidians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inkopolis. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Squidroidian economy, worth 601 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,487 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military struggles with recruitment, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, citizens frequently whisper of the Internet as 'the domain of the devil', and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Squidroidia's national animal is the Inkling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Squidroidia is ranked 12,747th in the world and 228th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 81.34 quips per hour.
