The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.422 billion Blogotopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 an astonishing 13,198 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 and Tourism. 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 394,916 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and Blogotopians no longer find themselves bumping into their exes at family gatherings. 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 229,014th in the world and 2,653rd in 10000 Islands for Most Avoided, scoring 0.13 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
