Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free State of Topid is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alex Corvis with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and self-igniting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.938 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 3,956 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, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 264,843 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 820,280 per year while the poor average 65,881, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and Topid-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. 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 33rd in St Abby and 141,205th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -338 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
