Population17.665 billion



The Empire of Cloydicia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The hard-nosed population of 17.665 billion Cloydicians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squibble. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cloydician economy, worth a remarkable 2,171 trillion Yangs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,941 Yangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors are encouraged to 'pull the plug' any time the government has a budget crisis, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cloydicia's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cloydicia is ranked 31,205th in the world and 1,032nd in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 71.93 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
