The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 35.909 billion Blogotopians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blogotopia City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Blogotopian economy, worth an astonishing 11,299 trillion doobies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 314,668 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, halberds are common 18th birthday presents, and few that venture into government archives are ever seen again. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Blogotopia's national animal is the hepcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Blogotopia is ranked 2,770th in the world and 64th in 10000 Islands for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 315.79 Bank.
