The American Dream of Architeuthis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Steve O'Shea with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 42.535 billion Architeuthisians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moistopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Architeuthisian economy, worth a remarkable 5,082 trillion root of all evils a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,479 root of all evils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and army doctors who come under attack defend themselves by using stethoscopes like nunchaku. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Architeuthis's national animal is the ample-rumped sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Architeuthis is ranked 108,938th in the world and 39th in United States for Most Extreme, scoring 20.97 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
