Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.109 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 285 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 15,782 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, genetic researchers have been expelled, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. 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 529th in Europe and 142,170th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -154 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
