The 𝕋𝕣𝕠𝕟𝕚𝕗𝕚𝕖𝕕 Dystopia of Bedetopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Electric Dictator Bedebao with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.251 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare is also considered important, 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 5,363 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, extremely specialized 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 376,353 βedollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, workers' complaints never reach central planning, and knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bedetopia's national animal is the Tentacled Lion of Venus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bedetopia is ranked 170,840th in the world and 17th in Scath for Fattest Citizens, with 0.99 Obesity Rate.
