|Leader||Grand Duke Octavian XVII|
The Grand Duchy of Oktavio is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Octavian XVII with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.668 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, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oktavio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Oktavioan economy, worth 388 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 232,819 francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,249,383 per year while the poor average 22,651, a ratio of 55.2 to 1.
Emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. 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.
