OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.915 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 is mainly concerned with 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.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, copyright laws have been abolished, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and a government program is underway to revitalize An Clar's beaches. 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 351st in Europe and 116,274th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -6 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
