The 𝕋𝕣𝕠𝕟𝕚𝕗𝕚𝕖𝕕 Dystopia of Bedetopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Electric Dictator Bedebao with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, disturbing lack of elderly people, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.616 billion Bedetopians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The βetaship. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bedetopian economy, worth a remarkable 7,018 trillion βedollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 398,405 βedollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, train stations can be 'armful places, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bedetopia's national animal is the Tentacled Lion of Venus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bedetopia is ranked 230,248th in the world and 33rd in The Maritimes for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -59.91 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
