The American Dream of Architeuthis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Steve O'Shea with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 36.694 billion Architeuthisians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moistopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Architeuthisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,730 trillion root of all evils a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,677 root of all evils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lending money has become a major liability, hungry families offer spare change to their social workers, praying before a battle is a court-martial offence, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Architeuthis's national animal is the ample-rumped sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Architeuthis is ranked 665th in the world and 1st in United States for Most Pacifist, with 246.34 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
