The 𝕋𝕣𝕠𝕟𝕚𝕗𝕚𝕖𝕕 Dystopia of Bedetopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Electric Dictator Bedebao with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.944 billion Bedetopians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Defense, with Healthcare and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The βetaship. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Bedetopian economy, worth a remarkable 6,725 trillion βedollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 396,913 βedollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that he is in fact a crook after all, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque, and children have only the most basic of education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bedetopia's national animal is the Tentacled Lion of Venus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bedetopia is ranked 207,853rd in the world and 30th in The Maritimes for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.16 Crimes Per Hour.
