The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.028 billion Blogotopians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 12,082 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, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 377,255 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, much of Blogotopia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Ding Dong Daddy. 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 14,106th in the world and 102nd in 10000 Islands for Most Income Equality, scoring 78.02 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
