The Socialist Union of Commintopia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tsar Fredrick with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.161 billion Commintopians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.1%.

The sizeable but inefficient Commintopian economy, worth 94.9 trillion Coins 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 43,921 Coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Survivors of attempted maternal infanticide are sentenced to live with their mothers forever, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and Tsar Fredrick claims no responsibility for what Tsar Fredrick's government does. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commintopia's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Commintopia is ranked 202,829th in the world and 19th in The Burning Legion for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -10.39 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
