The United People's Grand Duchy of Clotia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.931 billion Clotians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clotia City. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Clotian economy, worth 573 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 195,606 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, a new apartment is worth a thousand betrayals, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clotia's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.

Clotia is ranked 167,989th in the world and 4th in Global Union of Nations for Most Devout, with 2.02 Prayers Per Hour.
