The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 38.237 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 13,546 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, 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 354,268 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, every week is blindness awareness week, the Blogotopia Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and even secular Blogotopians are shouting "Blessed are the cheesemakers!". 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 13,320th in the world and 213th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,933.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
