Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.584 billion Blogotopians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 a remarkable 8,794 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, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. 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 330,825 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pushy mums tell their kids to be doctors and engineers but steer them away from being penniless lawyers, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Blogotopia's national animal is the hepcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blogotopia is ranked 179,124th in the world and 1,269th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -78.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
