The Anocratic empire of Bigpipstan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Bigpip with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.328 billion Imperials are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial castle. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,736 trillion Vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 208,540 Vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal, sharing vacation pictures requires written consent from the entire beach resort, an online tea-bagging epidemic is getting worse and (meta)worse, and life is somewhat repetitive. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bigpipstan's national animal is the Gootraxian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Neo-Harmonism.

Bigpipstan is ranked 278,288th in the world and 2nd in Pony planets for Most Pro-Market, scoring -84.44 on the Rand Index.
