The Confederate States of Claraxia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr Towns with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 33.937 billion Claraxians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small 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 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Claraxian economy, worth a remarkable 9,373 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 276,206 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, people who get diabetes can sue donut manufacturers, astronauts take one small step for Claraxia and one giant step backward from confrontation, and constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas". Crime is totally unknown. Claraxia's national animal is the timber wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cult of Shimajiro.

Claraxia is ranked 2,921st in the world and 80th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 48 Valid Endorsements.
