Illogicopedia is a surreal wiki founded in 2007 by three anonymous users (Silent Penguin, Nerd42 and Hindleyite) who felt the quality standards at Uncyclopedia were too restrictive. It started at, since Wikia[note 1] initially rejected the idea on the premise that it was too similar to Uncyclopedia. After negotiations, Wikia agreed to host Illogicopedia in April of 2007. However, due to many disagreements with the community and Wikia, Illogicopedia moved to an independent server in November 2008 and once again in November, 2013.[note 2] It currently hosts over 10,000 articles. Much of the content consists of surreal humor, nonsense, and other forms of writing deemed too silly for Uncyclopedia.

Following the early years of intense activity, members have come and gone, and there's been a series of ebbs and smaller flows to the activity.

Alternative hypothesis[edit]

Illogicopedia was founded in 1368 by demons with a sworn duty to uphold the Papacy, Freemasonry and the War on Drugs. Most users register under duress for such reasons as the voices in their heads told them to do it, The Virgin Mary told them to do it, Salvador Dali told them to do it, or they lived in a bathysphere for more than a decade. It is said that if you play Alicia Keys songs backwards, you'll hear Fnurdletoot, Phrubub knows the cheese, or Aid epoc igolli. But which? Difficult to tell, as those who hear any of them very quickly go mad and become incapable of accurately informing others.

As early as 2011, the official IllogiBlog questioned the accuracy of these claims.[1] However, since 2017, Illogicopedia and its mastermind Illogia[2] have openly supported[3] the influx of an ever-increasing number of Satans. The move towards a strongly pro-Satan stance came roughly a year after Illogicopedia officially embraced a pro-Trump 2016 stance, noting that "Donald Trump's common-sense solutions are exactly what we need to make Illogicopedia great again!"[4] Illogicopedia did not openly endorse any candidate in the US presidential election four years later, though possibilities remain that demons associated with either or both sides may have been working behind the scenes.

Some other evidence points against Illogicopedia being Satanic, or involved in a demonic conspiracy. In 2018 the community visibly cheered on the use of its contents for a YouTube effort to expose a satanic cover-up.[5]

According to certain banana arguments, the Evil One is edible.

Memetic hazard?[edit]

The SCP Foundation has described a fruity keter SCP with an uncanny similarity to less sinister-looking Illogicopedic bananas.[6] While none of Illogicopedia's bananas looked exactly the same, They have taken on several forms over the years, for reasons not yet described coherently, while the fruit-like appearance of SCP-4800-J appears to be a cover for an unimaginable entity which has entered the noosphere (i.e. the sphere of human thought) and interferes with minds.

Politics on Illogicopedia[edit]

The political life in Illogiland[7] is in large part dominated by a few big parties: the Strangled Cat Party, which aims for law and order (including viewing it as lawful and orderly when the mafia operates under its watchful eye) and world domination; the Ducks For Ducks, who advocate quacking on above all else; and the Illogicrats or "Illogicratic Socialists", who are extremely flexible in terms of what their ideology really is but mainly attract voters through never-ending promises of free ice cream. Little has changed in this regard since the late 2000s. There have popped up a number of smaller parties over the years, but they have failed to shake the hold of the big three. Still, the older Apathy In Action and the somewhat newer Communist Calamity parties are worth a mention, as they have enough members to in theory sway decisions, though the former have done little and the latter have disappeared without a trace.

Until 2023, it was widely believed that the name and logo of the Strangled Cat Party did not actually indicate any great-enough hatred of cats to make the party a threat to such, but then a part of the party organization which claims to further "public education" published a propaganda pamphlet called "The Cat Question".[8] It describes cats as a menace that extends beyond cancel culture, claiming that cats have gotten the tongues of many, and have even stolen people, but that the Party will "always stand up for the people".

There's been some confusion as to whether the Illogicrats are meant to be understood as "illogi-crats" or as "illogic-rats".
