The Community of Squirreltopia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 457 million Squirrels love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bigtree. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Squirreltopian economy, worth 21.0 trillion Nuts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 45,989 Nuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious education is a new government priority, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Squirreltopia's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Squirreltopia is ranked 38,418th in the world and 1st in League of NonHumanoid Peoples for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,953.9 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
