The Grand Duchy of Old Utopia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Biel with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.64 billion Old Utopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kanton Inu. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Old Utopian economy, worth 486 trillion Shibecoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 133,752 Shibecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. Crime is totally unknown. Old Utopia's national animal is the Shibe Inu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Utopia is ranked 39,662nd in the world and 12th in Lezra for Most Income Equality, scoring 55.19 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
