The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.555 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, while Environment receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The large but stagnant An Clarian economy, worth 295 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 15,945 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All tariffs have been abolished, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. 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.
