The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.66 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The strong Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,691 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 225,620 banner yoyoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", and the latest political memes depict Gaius Melkor as an overly-choreographed robot. 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 220,728th in the world and 1,130th in Europe for Most Politically Free, scoring 10.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
