Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free State of Topid is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alex Corvis with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.153 billion Topes enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crow City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Topian economy, worth a remarkable 4,541 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 281,175 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,195,794 per year while the poor average 9,170, a ratio of 239 to 1.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Topid's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Heartagrism.

Topid is ranked 152,834th in the world and 108th in St Abbaddon for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -30.82 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
