The Community of Hypotopia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Cosmo with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.392 billion Hypotopians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alroms. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hypotopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,350 trillion Clamshells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 211,294 Clamshells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Hypotopia, disgruntled jocks are forced to play tetris for entertainment, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and Shrimp is one of the most popular forenames in Hypotopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hypotopia's national animal is the Shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Unsureism.

Hypotopia is ranked 176,366th in the world and 498th in The Wellspring for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 623.4 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
