The Commonwealth of The Utopian Initiative is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Mars Julien with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.751 billion Emancipated 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prodromos. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Emancipated economy, worth 239 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 136,654 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Emancipated, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Prodromos to enjoy their national art, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Utopian Initiative's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Utopian Initiative is ranked 143,127th in the world and 7,716th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 33.85 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
