The Utopian Initiative

Population3.621 billion

LeaderSalvatore Kim


The Commonwealth of The Utopian Initiative is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Salvatore Kim with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.621 billion Commons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Common economy, worth 567 trillion Credits 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,747 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billion-Credit sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, visions of giant pink octopuses are a common side effect after Commons eat their meals, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and they say that Salvatore Kim's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Utopian Initiative's national animal is the octopus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Utopian Initiative is ranked 55,590th in the world and 2,228th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,481.4 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
