The Anarchy of Blogotopia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ding Dong Daddy with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.853 billion Blogotopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded 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 13,074 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, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Tourism. 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 386,207 doobies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The art of conversation has been rediscovered, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, education and welfare spending are on the rise, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. 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 207,857th in the world and 1,660th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -82.39 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
