The Restored Empire of Natopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Zeal I with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 38.264 billion Natopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serradia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Natopian economy, worth an astonishing 17,709 trillion Alerican Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 462,811 Alerican Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, billions are being spent on a new island airport, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Natopia's national animal is the Blue Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Deism.

Natopia is ranked 697th in the world and 18th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 162.82 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
