New Octicarg

LeaderPapa Emeritus IV
FaithSynod of Singularity


The Ritual of New Octicarg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Papa Emeritus IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.111 billion New Octicargians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Achtimont. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Octicargian economy, worth 293 trillion galleons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 139,225 galleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Going on a diet invalidates your passport, the nation has nearly as many history museums as New Octicargians, hazmat suits are a common New Octicargian garb, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime is totally unknown. New Octicarg's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Synod of Singularity.

New Octicarg is ranked 188,836th in the world and 8,814th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.22 on the Rand Index.
