The Commonwealth of Biotopia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Principle with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.275 billion Biotopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Kordam. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Biotopian economy, worth a remarkable 6,382 trillion BioMs 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 218,034 BioMs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biotopia's national animal is the Sea Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Reverie.

Biotopia is ranked 363rd in the world and 5th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 99.08 on the Human Development Index.
