The Proud Nation of Topolyce is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ryder Daniels with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.165 billion Topolites 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Topol. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Topolycean economy, worth 664 trillion Pics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,417 Pics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Topolyce's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Topolyce is ranked 21,766th in the world and 1,162nd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 111.86 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
