The Popsicle Pete Nation of Clench is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.209 billion follower of Josephs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 32,242 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,033,116 monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,983,402 per year while the poor average 283,835, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, school uniforms are compulsory, and the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Clench's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Clench is ranked 31st in the world and 1st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 58,648.99 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
