The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.057 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The enormous but inefficient An Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,895 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,920 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every An Clarian grocery store, cars are banned from built-up areas, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest magpie hunting institutions, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. 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.
