The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.786 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 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 251 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 14,981 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students cut up leftover banner yoyoes during Arts and Crafts, concussed magpieball players cannot remember their lineup position, governments opposing An Clar are beset by rebels, and a study has shown that many parents are too embarrassed to teach their children sex education. 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.
