The Low-Key Den Mother of Octal is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Warden with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.477 billion Octans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Circuit City. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Oct economy, worth a remarkable 1,045 trillion Bits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 72,206 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, pet rocks are sold by the pound, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of The Warden's most personal functions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Octal's national animal is the Silicite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Binarism.

Octal is ranked 104,257th in the world and 197th in Capitalist Paradise for Fattest Citizens, with 9.9 Obesity Rate.
