The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.075 billion 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,340 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 166,396 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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.
