The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.762 billion An Clarians 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 on the agenda. 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.

The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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 5th in Europe and 273rd in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 393 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
