The Eternal Forest of Typica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eucleides with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.514 billion Typicans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ecotopia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Typican economy, worth a remarkable 2,923 trillion Standard Labors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 278,035 Standard Labors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn, board shorts have replaced board rooms, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. Crime is totally unknown. Typica's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is transcendentalism.

Typica is ranked 1,023rd in the world and 2nd in Refugia for Lowest Crime Rates, with 161.29 law-abiding acts per hour.
