The ✪ Free State ✪ of Topid is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alex Corvis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.583 billion Topes are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as the Environment and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crow City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail industries.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Topid's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Heartagrism, and its currency is the dollar.

Topid is ranked 21st in The United States and 107,251st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.003 Stalins.
