The Outback Paradise of Atopias is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jolly Swagman with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.787 billion Atopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matilda. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atopiasian economy, worth 569 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 98,327 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, rumor has it that Jolly Swagman has won three lotteries in a row, recognizing the Atopiasian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime is totally unknown. Atopias's national animal is the Jumbuck, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Waltzing.

Atopias is ranked 9,589th in the world and 216th in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 41.78 Bank.
