The Calmari Collective Creations of Squid Ruinosa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Beakest with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 17.299 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, socially-minded 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 98.3%.

The thriving Squinem economy, worth a remarkable 2,300 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 132,994 pointy Beaks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, the endangered saltwater humpback Lesser Squiden is only seen in captivity programs, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. 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 150,232nd in the world and 5,517th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.95 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
