The Calmari Collective Capacity of Squid Ruinosa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Beakest with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 21.041 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 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 98.5%.

The powerhouse Squinem economy, worth a remarkable 2,965 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 140,921 pointy Beaks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Squid Ruinosa, Squinem tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, straitjackets are a common religious garb, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. 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 1,374th in the world and 19th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 7,479.6 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
