The Commonwealth of Ecotopia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ernest Callenbach with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.717 billion Ecotopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Public Transport, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ecatepec de Morelos. The average income tax rate is 7.7%.

The strong Ecotopian economy, worth 322 trillion Sols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is 48,073 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, the government is outsourcing itself, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, and Ernest Callenbach has just been declared ruler of Ecotopia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ecotopia's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ecotopia is ranked 176,523rd in the world and 388th in Forest for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -5.48 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
