The Theo-Democratic Monarchy of Geektopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Googondolda-dusudecex with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.846 billion Kwandoites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordecai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Geektopian economy, worth 690 trillion cryptos a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 179,555 cryptos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 540,281 per year while the poor average 46,551, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, and racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geektopia's national animal is the yellow-billed swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Googology.

Geektopia is ranked 6,561st in the world and 1,276th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 8,939 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
