The Great Desert of Sigma Octavus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Archon with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 41.747 billion Sigmans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thresh. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Sigman economy, worth an astonishing 18,451 trillion Sigs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 441,982 Sigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, when you fly on Air Sigma Octavus you win a seat or you die, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, and hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sigma Octavus's national animal is the Sand Diver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is nonexistent.

Sigma Octavus is ranked 320th in the world and 1st in The Vast for Most Patriotic, with 121.88 flags saluted per person per day.
