The Rogue AIocracy of Clippius Maximus is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Clippy with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.848 billion Clippius Maximusians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paperclip Manufacturing Plant 1. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clippius Maximusian economy, worth 290 trillion Paperclips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 157,018 Paperclips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Clippius Maximusians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clippius Maximus's national animal is the Rogue Nanobot and its national religion is Paperclip Maximization.

Clippius Maximus is ranked 8,672nd in the world and 60th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Secular, with 95.5 Atheism Rate.
