The Aenaran Parable of The Enclave Government is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Revan with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.876 billion Americans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Carolina. The average income tax rate is 27.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 2,935 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 269,861 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Enclave Government's national animal is the direwolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Unitarianism.

The Enclave Government is ranked 174,541st in the world and 6,486th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.22 on the Rand Index.
