The Awkward Adages of Geektopia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jagino Zuperedosno with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.224 billion Kwandoites are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordecai. The average income tax rate is 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Geektopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,128 trillion cryptos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 215,981 cryptos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The people's love for Jagino Zuperedosno is little more than self-preservation, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, for just a few extra cryptos Kwandoites can get new driving records with their new cars, and bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Geektopia's national animal is the yellow-billed swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Math.

Geektopia is ranked 181,092nd in the world and 431st in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 9.01 Obesity Rate.
