The Federal Republic of Clarkstan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Luka Gavric with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.357 billion Clarkstanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Layton. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Clarkstanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,781 trillion Clarkstan marks a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 472,340 Clarkstan marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are hated by children across the country, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A President Luka Gavric For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of President Luka Gavric's supporters, and owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clarkstan's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Clarkstan is ranked 742nd in the world and 2nd in The Free Nations Region for Longest Average Lifespans, with 96.06 years.
