The Kingdom of Cleo and Topaz is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by HM Cleo and HM Topaz with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 26.062 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 1,979 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 20,461st in the world and 447th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 254.23 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
