The Proud Nation of Topolyce is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ryder Daniels with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.669 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Topol. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Topolycean economy, worth 760 trillion Pics a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,214 Pics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. 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 11,823rd in the world and 656th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,607.08 Tourists Per Hour.
