The Theo-Democratic Monarchy of Geektopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Googondolda-dusudecex with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.573 billion Kwandoites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordecai. The average income tax rate is 60.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Geektopian economy, worth 632 trillion cryptos a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 177,159 cryptos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, carpal tunnel syndrome is on the rise, babysitters are a thing of the past, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geektopia's national animal is the yellow-billed swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Googology.

Geektopia is ranked 188,677th in the world and 8,466th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -7.07 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
