The Queendom of Imkitopia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Imkihca with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.942 billion Imkitopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imkicity. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Imkitopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,833 trillion Ringadingdongs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,567 Ringadingdongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imkitopia's national animal is the Two-headed Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kaoism.

Imkitopia is ranked 227,297th in the world and 8,438th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -956.96 on the Hayek Index.
