The Free State of Topid is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alex Corvis with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.588 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 4,971 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 282,679 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,140,897 per year while the poor average 10,469, a ratio of 204 to 1.

Alex Corvis has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, and all recreational drugs are legal. 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 6,522nd in the world and 3rd in St Abbaddon for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,561.18 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
