The Commonwealth of New Octicarg is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 183 million New Octicargians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong New Octicargian economy, worth 13.8 trillion galleons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 75,543 galleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, pausing for applause during a speech is seen as a form of censorship, the Violet Mile now refers to the long line-ups that former death row inmates wait in as they transfer to maximum security prisons, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Octicarg's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

New Octicarg is ranked 53,645th in the world and 2,735th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,950.38 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
