The Holy Empire of Net-topia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by VirusMan with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.726 billion Net-topians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nettropolis. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Net-topian economy, worth 183 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,283 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, untold millions of Credits are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Net-topia with a very polite populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Net-topia's national animal is the Mettaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Net-topia is ranked 212,670th in the world and 893rd in 10000 Islands for Most Secular, with 12.7 Atheism Rate.
