New Octicarg

Population2.539 billion

LeaderPapa Emeritus IV
FaithSynod of Singularity


The Ritual of New Octicarg is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Papa Emeritus IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.539 billion New Octicargians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Achtimont. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Octicargian economy, worth 356 trillion galleons 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 Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 140,452 galleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at New Octicarg's hospitals, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy. Crime is totally unknown. New Octicarg's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Synod of Singularity.

New Octicarg is ranked 213,415th in the world and 9,664th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -224.9 on the Hayek Index.
