The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.493 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The powerhouse An Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,606 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 218,638 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Spies caught in An Clar are never heard from again, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, school uniforms are compulsory, and police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane. 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, and its national religion is Melkorianism.
