The Republic of Kliffsend is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 20 million Kliffsendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kliffsendian economy, worth 742 billion Münzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,113 Münzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kliffsend's national animal is the dead Sheep, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kliffsend is ranked 99,907th in the world and 301st in The Free Nations Region for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
