The Kingdom of Cleo and Topaz is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by HM Cleo and HM Topaz with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, devout population of 9.988 billion Topazites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brwoopt. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Cleo and Topazian economy, worth 637 trillion Furs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,834 Furs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
More and more students are taking up a career in medicine, the government is reining in public spending, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cleo and Topaz's national animal is the Gray Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reform Felineism.
