The Empire of Great Octavia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by God-Emperor Octavius with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.55 billion Octavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial District Primus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Octavian economy, worth 333 trillion octobucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 214,868 octobucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 774,219 per year while the poor average 42,641, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, adult stores are all sold out of whips, residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Great Octavia's national animal is the Great Octopus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is imperial cultism.

Great Octavia is ranked 269,993rd in the world and 223rd in The Internationale for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.07 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
