The Commonwealth of Biotopia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Raelene with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.188 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, although Social Policy, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Biotopian economy, worth a remarkable 5,328 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 203,468 Kopens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, organ donation rates have hit a new low, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. 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 99,507th in the world and 125th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 678.23 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
