Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.626 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, 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 3,243 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 157,275 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All news sources are under strict government control, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and vaccinations are mandatory. 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 155,343rd in the world and 766th in Europe for Most Primitive, scoring -324.64 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
