Octopus Islands

The Cephalopodic Republic of Octopus Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kraken with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory vegetarianism, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, devout population of 6.406 billion Cephalopods have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octopolis. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cephalopodic economy, worth 791 trillion tentacles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 123,626 tentacles, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, the government has legalised small-scale capitalism, rumor has it that Kraken has won three lotteries in a row, and owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octopus Islands's national animal is the mimic octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Octopus Islands is ranked 201,835th in the world and 395th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.39 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
