Regional Influence: Squire


The Calmari Collective Capacity of Squid Ruinosa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Beakest with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 20.1 billion Squod are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greater moon spire. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The powerhouse Squinem economy, worth a remarkable 2,802 trillion pointy Beaks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,443 pointy Beaks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The horniness of the great-horned Lesser Squiden is considered a national priority, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Squid Ruinosa. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Squid Ruinosa's national animal is the Lesser Squiden, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Octodox.

Squid Ruinosa is ranked 2,910th in the world and 74th in The East Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 46.83 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
