The Liberal Monarchy of Clifta is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Barnes with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 7.089 billion Cliftonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kungssången. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cliftan economy, worth 970 trillion kroner a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,960 kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, Barnes can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime is totally unknown. Clifta's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Clifta is ranked 143,686th in the world and 240th in Wintreath for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.37 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
