It is the plane that faces itself.
It is two sides of the same coin.
Bytopia is unique among the Outer Planes because the surfaces of its two layers face each other like the covers of a closed book. By looking up from Dothion, the "top" layer of the plane, the traveler can see Shurrock, its other layer. In a similar fashion, one may stand on Shurrock, and see the towns and farms of Dothion overhead.

Bytopia is divided intow two layers, each facing the other. The Astral Plane reaches both of these layers, though the more settled layer, Dothion, is considered the first layer. In general, outsiders and petitioners live on Dothion and go adventuring and exploring on Shurrock.
Dothion is the more populated of the two facing planes and is the home of the gnomes. It is a realm of pastoral activity and individual industry. Its rolling hills cluster around spikes of volcanic rock that jut toward its more savage companion layer. The land is a combination of open settled manor farms and well-tamed woods and forests.
Dothion is a very domestic plane, its petitioners raising silver-wooled sheep and golden-flecked lambs. The open spaces are huge manor fields of wheat, barley, and corn. The residents have dammed many gentle streams, harnessing them to waterwheels that grind the grain into excellent flour and meal. Towns here lack protective walls, but paved roads link them in well-ordered lines. It is a land of barns and beekeeping, of wool and milk, and of small shops and smithing. Most of the workshops that huddle along the roadside are privately owned, and the owners swear no allegiance beyond "the common good."
Shurrock is Dothion's wild counterpart. While Dothion is well mannered, Shurrock is savage. The land of Shurrock is filled with raw materials. Seams of gold and gems are found just beneath the surface, the tangled woodlands are rich in timer, and all manner of wild game thrives throughout the layer.
