The Theo-Democratic Monarchy of Geektopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Googondolda-dusudecex with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, aversion to nipples, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.885 billion Kwandoites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordecai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Geektopian economy, worth 699 trillion cryptos a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 180,047 cryptos, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Policy reversals are more often graceful demi-détournés than u-turns, choking on cryptos is a leading cause of death for wild animals, the fate of the world literally rests on Googondolda-dusudecex's fingers, and CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geektopia's national animal is the yellow-billed swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Googology.

Geektopia is ranked 66,254th in the world and 3,184th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 388.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
