The Bigtopia

Population2.5 billion

LeaderJed Bartlet
FaithThe Pursuit of Happiness


The Lake Superior Wreck of The Bigtopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jed Bartlet with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.5 billion Bigtopians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snowmouth. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Bigtopian economy, worth 89.6 trillion Galleons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 35,844 Galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

They say that Bigtopians made a dessert and called it peace, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bigtopia's national animal is the Endbringer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Pursuit of Happiness.

The Bigtopia is ranked 170,094th in the world and 348th in Thaecia for Highest Average Incomes, with 35,844.56 Standard Monetary Units.
