The Octopodial Overlord

Population455 million


The United Socialist States of The Octopodial Overlord is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 455 million Octopodial Overlordians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Octopodial Overlordian economy, worth 16.0 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,091 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, The Octopodial Overlord has designated The Octopodial Overlord City as its capital city, and where there's smoke there's the Octopodial Overlordian Forestry Department. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Octopodial Overlord's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Octopodial Overlord is ranked 44,129th in the world and 2,152nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,676.25 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
