New Clarkeland

The United Socialist States of New Clarkeland is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 430 million Clarkelandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.1%.

The sizeable but inefficient Clarkelandian economy, worth 17.3 trillion Soviet Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,182 Soviet Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mathematicians are hated by children across the country, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Clarkeland's national animal is the Gopnik Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Clarkeland is ranked 185,386th in the world and 9,122nd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.51 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
