The Theo-Democratic Monarchy of Geektopia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Googondolda-dusudecex with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.832 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 60.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Geektopian economy, worth 684 trillion cryptos a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 178,527 cryptos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 544,535 per year while the poor average 45,396, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Censors protect the public from lewd images of Bigtopians in duffel coats, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Geektopian satellites can detect it, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Kwandoites any less frightened, and cosy TV sitcom "AI Love Lucy" showcases harmonious human-robot cohabitation. 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 3,026th in the world and 126th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 1,206 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
