The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.214 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The An Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,116 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 162,218 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, governments opposing An Clar are beset by rebels, billions of banner yoyoes are being blown on orbital weapons development, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. 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.
