The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.324 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 morass — prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The thriving An Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,271 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 200,417 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout An Clar after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, magpie racing stadiums are open 24/7, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, and the nation leads Europe in per capita stalking. 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.

An Clar is ranked 4th in Europe and 158th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 393 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
