The Free State of Topid is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alex Corvis with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.2 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 3,283 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, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 248,776 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 828,018 per year while the poor average 55,696, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.
The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Crow City Times is sold out, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, armed police units patrol the roads late at night, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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.
