The Atomic Empire of Nukatopia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.964 billion Nukatopians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vault 88. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Nukatopian economy, worth a remarkable 2,685 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 450,231 credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,006,034 per year while the poor average 25,535, a ratio of 117 to 1.

Military advisors frequently remind San Vitenzan farmers that they have to pull the pin on a grenade before throwing it, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', it's said that Overlord can turn every pleasure into a chore, and no bunny expects the Nukatopian rabbit coalition. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nukatopia's national animal is the Mutant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atom.

Nukatopia is ranked 1,852nd in the world and 77th in Osiris for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 54 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
