Northen Octopus

The Empire of Northen Octopus is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 252 million Octopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 39.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Northen Octopusian economy, worth 16.0 trillion Pebbles 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 63,385 Pebbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, and recapturing giraffes is proving to be a tall order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northen Octopus's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Northen Octopus is ranked 8,134th in the world and 5th in Warzone Australia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 58.7 Whatever.
