Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.368 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 enormous but inefficient An Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,930 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,285 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Future leaders of An Clar regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. 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 55,866th in the world and 208th in Europe for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51 Whatever.
