The Stunning Stucco Strip Malls of The Bigtopia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jed Bartlet with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.678 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snowmouth. The average income tax rate is 59.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Bigtopian economy, worth 162 trillion Galleons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 44,150 Galleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warning signs caution Bigtopians where they may fall off 'the edge of the world', surprising numbers of poor people are protesting against taxing the rich, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. 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 Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Pursuit of Happiness.

The Bigtopia is ranked 150,451st in the world and 254th in Thaecia for Highest Average Incomes, with 44,150.89 Standard Monetary Units.
