The Anarcho-Capitalist Monarchy of Geektopia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Googondolda-dusudecex with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, vat-grown people, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.846 billion Kwandoites are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordecai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Geektopian economy, worth 250 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 135,764 bitcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 645,686 per year while the poor average 16,811, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

The tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, bleach is the nation's most common pesticide, pro-wrestling bouts open with a legal disclaimer insisting that any violence is guaranteed 100% faked, and people are bored of easy crossword puzzles. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Geektopia's national animal is the firefox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Googology.

Geektopia is ranked 18,482nd in the world and 18th in New Western Empire for Most Pro-Market, scoring 76.11 on the Rand Index.
