The Lake Superior Wreck of The Bigtopia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Taylor Herbert with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.873 billion Bigtopians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snowmouth. The average income tax rate is 71.8%.

The Bigtopian economy, worth 82.9 trillion Galleons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,265 Galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and prices for nearly everything reach all-time highs as business tax breaks are discontinued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 116,643rd in the world and 162nd in Thaecia for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.62 Crimes Per Hour.
