The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.96 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. 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 4,055 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 145,056 banner yoyoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Gay hospital patients are labelled with a pink triangle to alert staff of their substandard blood, diminutive Clarian generals are feared for their aggressiveness, bicyclists are banned from major roads, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. 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 235,774th in the world and 1,202nd in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2156.88 on the Hayek Index.
