Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.656 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 Industry and Environment are ignored. 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 249 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 14,970 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, billions are being spent on a new island airport, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, and large areas of An Clar are not accessible by the public. 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 66th in Europe and 9,072nd in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 7 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
