The American State of Topid is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alex Corvis with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.677 billion Topes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The minute, corrupt, 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 3,199 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 252,380 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 907,755 per year while the poor average 50,224, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.
Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage. 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 49th in The United States and 112,149th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -2,192.15 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
