The United Socialist States of Clarkistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by MC BC with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate population of 4.633 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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 91%, 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.
Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government. 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.
