OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Clarkistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by MC BC with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.576 billion Clarkistanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 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.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 130th in the Rejected Realms and 8,762nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 14 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
