The Low-Key Den Mother of Octal is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Warden with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 16.608 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Circuit City. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Oct economy, worth a remarkable 1,220 trillion Bits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 73,516 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of The Warden's most personal functions, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless. 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.
