The United Kingdom of Clarence-Voslage is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HM The King with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.802 billion Clarence-Voslageans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Griswall City. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clarence-Voslagean economy, worth 247 trillion Voslagean marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,114 Voslagean marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, nine out of ten citizens of Clarence-Voslage answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, and children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Voslagean mark charge on their phone bill. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clarence-Voslage's national animal is the pigeon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Clarence-Voslagean cult.

Clarence-Voslage is ranked 91,786th in the world and 3,025th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,184.17 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
