The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.07 billion Clarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,474 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 215,306 banner yoyoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lending money has become a major liability, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, everybody's got wood thanks to Gaius Melkor, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. An Clar's national animal is the magpie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Melkorianism.

An Clar is ranked 160,361st in the world and 693rd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.28 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
