The Tentaklist Theocracy of Tentaklia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prophet Athena Andrews with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 20.302 billion Tentaklians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Temple. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Tentaklian economy, worth a remarkable 3,875 trillion bgils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 190,909 bgils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Prophet Athena Andrews wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, Prophet Athena Andrews is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, and it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Tentaklian resumés. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tentaklia's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is the Church of Tentaklos.

Tentaklia is ranked 275,398th in the world and 2nd in Avalanchia for Fattest Citizens, with 2.54 Obesity Rate.
