The 𝕋𝕣𝕠𝕟𝕚𝕗𝕚𝕖𝕕 Dystopia of Bedetopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Electric Dictator Bedebao with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, fear of technology, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.735 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 and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. 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 6,147 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 390,704 βedollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bedetopia isn't what it used to be, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, and beat cops aren't named for the territory they patrol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 176,093rd in the world and 9th in Qiama for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -51.9 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
