The Sultanate of Boogatopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Despotic One with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.952 billion Boogatopians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echistein. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Boogatopian economy, worth an astonishing 13,430 trillion yuris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 448,412 yuris, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,675,908 per year while the poor average 84,030, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, it's said that The Great Despotic One can turn every pleasure into a chore, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boogatopia's national animal is the bunny girl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of the Despot.

Boogatopia is ranked 19,148th in the world and 804th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,457.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
