The Outback Paradise of Atopias is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jolly Swagman with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.535 billion Atopians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Matilda. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atopiasian economy, worth 395 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 111,850 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril. Crime is totally unknown. Atopias's national animal is the Jumbuck, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Waltzing.

Atopias is ranked 14,470th in the world and 582nd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 7,123.95 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
