The Unified Golden States of The Age of Utopia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Elected Benevolent Law Watcher with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 2.608 billion Age of Utopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradise Utopia. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Age of Utopian economy, worth 369 trillion Utopians a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,544 Utopians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and Age of Utopian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about The Elected Benevolent Law Watcher. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Age of Utopia's national animal is the Northern Utopian Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Age of Utopia is ranked 130,492nd in the world and 7th in Amalgamated Federation for Largest Black Market, with 131 billion Standard Monetary Units.
