The Sultanate of Boogatopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Despotic One with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.781 billion Boogatopians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echistein. The average income tax rate is 49.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Boogatopian economy, worth an astonishing 11,198 trillion yuris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. 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 403,085 yuris, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, all guns must be registered, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boogatopia's national animal is the bunny girl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of the Despot.

Boogatopia is ranked 122,687th in the world and 4,719th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -18.45 on the Hayek Index.
