The Anocratic empire of Bigpipstan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Bigpip with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.512 billion Bigpipstanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial castle. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bigpipstanian economy, worth 733 trillion abolisheds 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 162,538 abolisheds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, the government regularly crumbles under the pressure of terrorists, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Bigpipstan. Crime is totally unknown. Bigpipstan's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Neo-Harmonism.

Bigpipstan is ranked 93,919th in the world and 17th in Pony Realms for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
