Clone Republic

Population40 million

Currencygold coin

The Colony of Clone Republic is a small, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 40 million Clones enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.7%.

The very strong Clone economy, worth 2.40 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 60,073 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, surveillance cameras are banned, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clone Republic's national animal is the cardinal, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Clone Republic is ranked 22,362nd in the world and 37th in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 6,514.53 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
