The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.083 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, airport security is provided by private companies, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. 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, its national religion is Melkorianism, and its currency is the banner yoyo.

An Clar is ranked 372nd in Europe and 116,559th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -399 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
