The People's Republic of Kladderstan is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 425 million Kladderstanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Kladderstanian economy, worth 3.09 trillion lapps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 7,265 lapps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign lack of enthusiasm for Kladderstanian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kladderstan's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kladderstan is ranked 222,218th in the world and 5,805th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.12 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
