The Outback Paradise of Atopias is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jolly Swagman with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.9 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 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atopiasian economy, worth 496 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 101,391 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bike rage is all the rage, the horniness of the great-horned Jumbuck is considered a national priority, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and rumor has it that Jolly Swagman has won three lotteries in a row. 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 150,524th in the world and 1,176th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 130 billion Standard Monetary Units.
