The Aenaran Parable of The Enclave Government is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Revan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.697 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 23.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 2,164 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 a large, well-organized, 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 248,841 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". 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 159,609th in the world and 10th in International Concordia League for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 37.29 Workforce Participation Rate.
