|Leader||Grand Duke Octavian XVII|
The Grand Duchy of Oktavio is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duke Octavian XVII with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.172 billion Oktavions are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oktavio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Oktavioan economy, worth 566 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 260,755 francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,453,712 per year while the poor average 23,351, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.
The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, according to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, and politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oktavio's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
