The Democratic Republic of False Utopia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 652 million False Utopias are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lungmen. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming False Utopian economy, worth 61.7 trillion quantums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,657 quantums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and Information Technology facilities are being turned into ibis habitats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. False Utopia's national animal is the ibis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

False Utopia is ranked 110,884th in the world and 298th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.12 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
