The Republic of Cleston is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Hunter-Clark with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 3.655 billion Clestonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbia. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clestonian economy, worth 515 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 140,938 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Behind every local dictator is a Clestonian advisor whispering in their ear, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cleston's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Cleston is ranked 59,528th in the world and 194th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 56.05 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
