The United Socialist States of Clarkistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by MC BC with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.119 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swapan. The average income tax rate is 88%, 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.
A determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. 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.
