OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.592 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, notable individuals are granted land and titles, and the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. An Clar's national animal is the magpie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Melkorianism, and its currency is the banner yoyo.

An Clar is ranked 353rd in Europe and 112,464th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -12 Whatever.
