The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.942 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, 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 6,331 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 211,471 banner yoyoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. 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 226th in the world and 4th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 223.15 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
