Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.806 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, 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 279 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 15,696 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, magpie sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, political activists are routinely executed, and the ban on cars has been repealed. 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 7th in Europe and 398th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 710 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
