Regional Influence: Contender
The Kingdom of Cleo and Topaz is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by HM Cleo and HM Topaz with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, cynical population of 7.271 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brwoopt. The average income tax rate is 85%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Abortions are routinely performed in Cleo and Topaz's hospitals, Amnesty Interregional has condemned Cleo and Topaz for ignoring crimes against humanity, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. 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, its national religion is Reform Felineism, and its currency is the Fur.
