The Colony of Cleo City is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 640 million Cleo Cityians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Defense, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cleoa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.
The strong Cleo Cityian economy, worth 39.5 trillion Dingadangdongs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 61,681 Dingadangdongs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 346,350 per year while the poor average 5,436, a ratio of 63.7 to 1.
Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, children are raised bilingual from an early age, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cleo City's national animal is the Crocodile, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.
