The 𝕋𝕣𝕠𝕟𝕚𝕗𝕚𝕖𝕕 Dystopia of Bedetopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Electric Dictator Bedebao with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.188 billion Bedetopians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The βetaship. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bedetopian economy, worth a remarkable 6,828 trillion βedollars 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 397,270 βedollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers' complaints never reach central planning, recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Electric Dictator Bedebao's eyes only', religious citizens are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bedetopia's national animal is the Tentacled Lion of Venus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bedetopia is ranked 224,539th in the world and 34th in The Maritimes for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -65.9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
