The Empire of Great Octavia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor Octavius with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.595 billion Octavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial District Primus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Octavian economy, worth 337 trillion octobucks 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. 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 211,667 octobucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 769,595 per year while the poor average 41,420, a ratio of 18.6 to 1.

Great Octavia Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Octavian military, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Great Octavia's national animal is the Great Octopus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is imperial cultism.

Great Octavia is ranked 238,644th in the world and 220th in The Internationale for Most Income Equality, scoring 5.38 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
