The United States of Claraxia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 39.777 billion Claraxians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Claraxian economy, worth an astonishing 10,980 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 276,056 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Leader is a silly poophead, and suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps. Crime is totally unknown. Claraxia's national animal is the raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cult of Shimajiro.

Claraxia is ranked 622nd in the world and 24th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 271.91 quips per hour.
