Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.725 billion Clarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 underdeveloped Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,923 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 134,584 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. 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 7,166th in the world and 36th in Europe for Most Authoritarian, with 3.03 Stalins.
