The Ann3 of Anne of Cleves in TNP is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Anne of Cleves III with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.619 billion 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 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Clevesian economy, worth 55.1 trillion Kleve Thalers 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 slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. 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 9,810 Kleve Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment, hotels often double as quarantine zones, and it is illegal to comfort a crying baby between the hours of 6 pm and 8 pm. 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 in TNP's national animal is the Clevesian Red Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anneist Lutheran Christianity.

Anne of Cleves in TNP is ranked 15,275th in the world and 726th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 88.93 law-abiding acts per hour.
