OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Clarkistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by MC BC with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The compassionate population of 5.246 billion Clarkistanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swapan. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

Clarkistan successfully hosted the Lazarus Olympics, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime is totally unknown. Clarkistan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dolla dolla bill y'all.

Clarkistan is ranked 138th in Lazarus and 3,943rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 27 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
