The Bigtopia

The Stunning Stucco Strip Malls of The Bigtopia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dalinar Kholin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.773 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urithiru. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Bigtopian economy, worth 196 trillion Sphereses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 41,258 Sphereses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and all Bigtopians love the taste of self-sufficiency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bigtopia's national animal is the Spren, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vorinism.

The Bigtopia is ranked 207,907th in the world and 299th in Thaecia for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.61 kickbacks per hour.
