OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Cephalopodic Republic of Octopus Islands is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kraken with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, parental licensing program, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, devout population of 6.525 billion Cephalopods 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cephalopodic economy, worth 810 trillion tentacles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 124,178 tentacles, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government has legalised small-scale capitalism, rumor has it that Kraken has won three lotteries in a row, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octopus Islands's national animal is the mimic octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Octopus Islands is ranked 42,511th in the world and 42nd in Forest for Most Average, scoring 45.48 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
