The Dictatorship of Anne of Cleves is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, ritual sacrifices, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 588 million Clevesians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Cleves. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Clevesian economy, worth 6.56 trillion Anne Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 11,161 Anne Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting', blind dates tend to result in bruised shins, and Court TV ratings have skyrocketed now that executions are filmed on location. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anne of Cleves's national animal is the Clevesian Red Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Anne of Cleves is ranked 219,609th in the world and 17th in The Palaiologian Kingdoms for Nudest, with 0.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
