The Republic of Clistane is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.902 billion Clistaneans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andena. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.8%.
The all-consuming Clistanean economy, worth 589 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,829 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.
Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clistane's national animal is the Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
