The Kingdom of Cleo and Topaz is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by HM Cleo and HM Topaz with an even hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.677 billion Topazites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 84%, 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.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, school uniforms are compulsory, and discarded pennies litter the streets. 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.

Cleo and Topaz is ranked 25th in California and 99,960th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -12 on the Hayek Index.
