The Terrible Twos of Topores is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Robert Pershing Wadlow with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.103 billion Tops love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altus. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The High economy, worth 126 trillion top hats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 60,302 top hats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Topores, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Topores's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elevation.

Topores is ranked 158,196th in the world and 287th in Thaecia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.25 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
