The United Socialist States of Clarkistan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by MC BC with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.37 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swapan. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.
The all-consuming Clarkistanian economy, worth 608 trillion Dolla dolla bill y'alls a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,578 Dolla dolla bill y'alls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, birth rates have hit an all-time low, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clarkistan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
Clarkistan is ranked 95th in the Rejected Realms and 5,988th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 656.9 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
