The Clamdinger of Clamdigger is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 37.106 billion Clamdiggerians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Clamdiggerian economy, worth 584 trillion blunder pumpkins 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 slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 15,743 blunder pumpkins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clamdigger's national animal is the feisty meatfox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Clamdigger is ranked 90,148th in the world and 3rd in The East Atlantic for Most Authoritarian, with 706.07 milliStalins.
