The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 35.921 billion Blogotopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blogotopia City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Blogotopian economy, worth an astonishing 11,323 trillion doobies 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, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 315,231 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The cold war against capitalism is growing chillier by the day, the Blogotopian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, and entire families are dragged into counseling whenever children fight on a playground. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Blogotopia's national animal is the hepcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blogotopia is ranked 2nd in the world and 1st in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 41,716.12 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
