The Bigtopia

The Lake Superior Wreck of The Bigtopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jed Bartlet with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, prohibition of alcohol, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.42 billion Bigtopians 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snowmouth. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Bigtopian economy, worth 85.9 trillion Galleons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 35,507 Galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

There are no bananas today in The Bigtopia, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and people are bored of easy crossword puzzles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bigtopia's national animal is the Endbringer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Pursuit of Happiness.

The Bigtopia is ranked 19,308th in the world and 61st in Thaecia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.19 Years.
