The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, triple-decker prams, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.803 billion Clarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,936 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 172,627 banner yoyoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, disputed territories across Europe are being claimed by Clarian college students, fashion stores are exploding in sales as clothing is reintroduced to the country, and there's a hole in the heart of every Clarian city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. An Clar's national animal is the magpie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Melkorianism.

An Clar is ranked 168,026th in the world and 1,114th in Europe for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 9.24 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
