The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.19 billion Clarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The enormous but inefficient Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,922 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,903 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, research into 'designer babies' is banned, and atheists are heavily taxed. 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.
