The Kingdom of Cleo and Topaz is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by HM Cleo and HM Topaz with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 26.114 billion Topazites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brwoopt. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cleo and Topazian economy, worth a remarkable 1,983 trillion Furs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,970 Furs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, economists claim no news is good news, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cleo and Topaz's national animal is the Gray Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reform Felineism.

Cleo and Topaz is ranked 213,523rd in the world and 5,169th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
