The Federal Republic of Clarkstan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Luka Gavric with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.913 billion Clarkstanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Layton. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Clarkstanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,329 trillion Clarkstan marks a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 454,963 Clarkstan marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clarkstan's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Clarkstan is ranked 44,074th in the world and 20th in Thalassia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,742.41 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
