Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Popsicle Pete Nation of Clench is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.663 billion followers of Joseph 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, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 24,132 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 1,019,849 monies, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

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 160,710th in the world and 2,971st in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 0.78 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
