The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 28.225 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 a remarkable 9,873 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. Average income is an amazing 349,800 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and no one is quite sure what many government officials look like. 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 1,021st in the world and 26th in 10000 Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 579.2 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
