The Commonwealth of Biotopia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Raelene with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ban on automobiles, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.106 billion Biotopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yarraloo. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Biotopian economy, worth a remarkable 5,078 trillion Kopens 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 202,292 Kopens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and throwing a sickie is a serious crime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biotopia's national animal is the sea serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Biotopia is ranked 152nd in the world and 2nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Inclusive, scoring 575.55 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
