The Dictatorship of Bedetopian Post Office is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 9.58 billion Blue Shiny Postmen are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Bedetopian economy, worth 60.3 trillion Shiny Stamps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 6,289 Shiny Stamps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bedetopian Post Office's national animal is the Tentacled Lion of Venus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bedetopian Post Office is ranked 237,156th in the world and 1st in Public Telegrams for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.02 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
