The Octopodial Overlord

Population473 million


The United Socialist States of The Octopodial Overlord is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 473 million Octopodial Overlordians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Octopodial Overlordian economy, worth 17.1 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,206 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, The Octopodial Overlord has designated The Octopodial Overlord City as its capital city, and where there's smoke there's the Octopodial Overlordian Forestry Department. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Octopodial Overlord's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Octopodial Overlord is ranked 53,921st in the world and 2,379th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,186.36 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
