The Free Land of Stumptopia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 904 million Stumptopians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Stumptopian economy, worth 37.5 trillion Schmeckles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 41,529 Schmeckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stumptopia's national animal is the puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
