The Free Land of Stumptopia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 996 million Stumptopians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Stumptopian economy, worth 41.7 trillion Schmeckles 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 41,859 Schmeckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, extreme political groups are outlawed, and even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stumptopia's national animal is the puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Stumptopia is ranked 180,630th in the world and 6,951st in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -76.25 on the Rand Index.
