The John Lennon Utopia of Strawberrry Fields is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Lennon with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.694 billion Strawberrians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imagine City Peacetopia. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, Strawberrry Fields's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is totally unknown. Strawberrry Fields's national animal is the Walrus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Brotherhood of the Walrus, and its currency is the Strawberry.

Strawberrry Fields is ranked 4th in Hippy Haven and 730th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 57 on the Enoch Index.
