The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 38.244 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 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 13,405 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 350,530 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even secular Blogotopians are shouting "Blessed are the cheesemakers!", real chickens replace rooster weather vanes on inner-city rooftop gardens, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies. 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 276,476th in the world and 1,446th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -81.31 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
