The Commonwealth of Ideotopia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 484 million Ideotopians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iustitia. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ideotopian economy, worth 22.7 trillion simoleons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,911 simoleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ideotopia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ideotopia is ranked 205,579th in the world and 149th in Refugia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 51,281 Standard Monetary Units.
