The Bigtopia

Population4.115 billion

LeaderDalinar Kholin


The Stunning Stucco Strip Malls of The Bigtopia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dalinar Kholin with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.115 billion Bigtopians 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urithiru. The average income tax rate is 58.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Bigtopian economy, worth 168 trillion Sphereses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,023 Sphereses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and all Bigtopians love the taste of self-sufficiency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bigtopia's national animal is the Spren, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vorinism.

The Bigtopia is ranked 208,930th in the world and 308th in Thaecia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 48,632 Standard Monetary Units.
