The Kitten selling sugarade of Utopian CareTaker is a massive, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.377 billion Utopian CareTakerians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Utopian CareTakerian economy, worth 42.5 trillion Work Credits 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 30,878 Work Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign nationals are widely distrusted, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, and newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Utopian CareTaker's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Utopian CareTaker is ranked 205,004th in the world and 16th in Caravansary for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.54 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
