Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.723 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, 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 enormous but inefficient An Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,983 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,250 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One lone government employee can be seen hunting for the elusive stray white dog, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. 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 68,534th in the world and 270th in Europe for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,045.14 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
