The Utopian Initiative

Population2.326 billion

LeaderPremier Mars Julien


The Commonwealth of The Utopian Initiative is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Mars Julien with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.326 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare 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 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Emancipated economy, worth 336 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 144,767 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, and the nation forgives those who are big enough to admit they made a mistake. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Utopian Initiative is ranked 86,151st in the world and 4,640th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 37.88 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
