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 notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.208 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 is 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 262 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 15,244 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, children spout "Worship the Banner or be destroyed!" involuntarily throughout the day, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. 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 480th in Europe and 130,344th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -272 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
