The Queendom of Cladosporium is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 343 million Cladosporiumians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The strong Cladosporiumian economy, worth 17.2 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 50,002 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 322,271 per year while the poor average 3,134, a ratio of 102 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Cladosporium's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cladosporium is ranked 19,228th in the world and 1st in The Basement Colonies for Nudest, with 218.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
