The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.85 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 isn't funded at all. 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 6,033 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,578 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
It's best not to ask what goes into Inis Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, and where there's smoke there's the Clarian Forestry Department. 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.
